“Rainy Day Walk”
by: Joanna Potter
It was a cool, cloudy day, and it had beed drizzling or raining almost everyday for a week. My siblings and I were itching to go outside. The drizzling had stopped, so I took the chance to slip outside for a few minutes. Before leaving the house, my Mom had given me permission to take her phone to see if I could get some good photos. We have a wooded area behind our house, so I decided to head back there. On my way, I noticed all the little water droplets on the grass blades. Thinking it would make a neat shot, I snapped a picture. Once I reached the woods, there were so many neat things to take pictures of! The dripping leaves were my first goal, they made perfect images to shoot. Dressed in bright spring green, with lots of water all over, they made for a cheerful picture. Heading down one of the trails, I kept a lookout for anything that might make a good rain shot. Ducking under a wet branch, I spotted several spider webs. With dozens of water droplets decorating their surface, they made for some unique shots. Continuing on I snapped more shots of wet leaves and branches. As I circled back around to the house, I caught sight of a snail inching his way up a branch. I took a few pictures before I found some more snails nosing their way through the wet surroundings. While I was taking a few last shots, it began to drizzle again. Decided to close my photo shoot in the woods, I hurried back to the house hoping not to get myself and the phone too wet!March 24, 2023 at 4:04 pm #76935March 24, 2023 at 4:08 pm #76941
“March in Texas”
by: Joanna Potter
March in Texas is quite interesting. The weather is ever changing. It may be warm and sunny one day, then cloudy, cool, and rainy the next. The temperature varies from 50 degrees to mid-80’s. One of my favorite things about March in Texas is the wildflowers. With the coming of spring, Texas wildflowers bloom all over; from the side of the highway to the nature trails. One sunny day, I found a clump of Bluebonnets, Texas’ state flower, swaying in the breeze. They made a beautiful picture! Another neat thing about March in Texas is all the new life that nature presents. The corn in our garden was sprouting and the new little plants were standing tall. I even came across a few of our zinnias leftover from last summer that had sprouted. Even the peach tree blossoms and buds were open wide. March in Texas is full of new life and new beginnings!March 24, 2023 at 4:11 pm #76943March 24, 2023 at 4:18 pm #76948March 24, 2023 at 4:23 pm #76953March 24, 2023 at 5:46 pm #76958Lydia BennettKeymaster
Woohoo! Go you guys! Love seeing all these submissions coming in!
A couple of you asked some questions, so let’s get some answers for you!
Do I need to upload my photos to the Dropbox link as well? Or is it okay as long as they upload here without being downsized?
It would be great if you could upload your high-resolution (original size) images to the Dropbox link provided on the assignment details page. That would be a tremendous help, Laura!
Is it possible to edit a couple of my submissions?
Brieanna, feel free to send the information you would like added directly to me via email, and I’ll see if we can help out.
Joelle Bohling is my Mom’s name. Mine is Caleb. Is there any way to change that?
Yes, absolutely, Caleb! Go to “My Account” (on the top bar of the website). From there, click “profile”, and then “edit”. At that point, change your name and save changes! You should be good to go.

Here is my submission.
“March – Still Winter”
by Evelyn with some help from William
“Still winter” we call it up here in Quebec;
Yes, March is still winter with plenty of snow.
I put on my boots and my hat and my mitts,
And put on my snowshoes, with camera in tow.
I open the door and see snow flying ‘round,
Then outside I go with one phrase in my mind,
“I must find a subject that tells me of March.”
But other than snowflakes, what else can I find?
Then flittery-flutter, he catches my eye:
A chickadee lands with a whir and a whiz.
An emblem of March, on a snowy brown limb;
Astride on a larch twig, how cheerful he is!March 25, 2023 at 3:22 pm #76967

March in SE Georgia
by Samuel West
March marks the beginning of spring and the change of seasons in Southeast Georgia. Here, March is the transition between frosty February and warm April. Many mornings are cool sometimes even frosty while afternoons are usually warm or hot. In March flowers bloom, such as the myrtle tree flowers, blanketing the forests with white. Plants begin to bud and put out leaves.
Many insects and birds also return in the month of March. I went out one warm afternoon to see what I could find. As I explored, I enjoyed hearing and seeing many birds. I was able to photograph the Brown-headed Cowbird and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher as well as the ever present Northern Cardinal and winter Chipping Sparrow. I also photographed a dragonfly which have just begun to reappear and attempted to photograph another March icon here – gnats. However, none of the pictures turned out too well. On another occasion I tried to photograph the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, which had also returned, but he appeared too shy. Only a friendly honeybee cared to have his picture taken 😊. March in Southeast Georgia is an awesome time to get back outdoors, enjoy the warmer weather, and watch the growing season begin. From trees to flowers to birds to insects, there is so much to enjoy and explore in the month of March.March 25, 2023 at 3:25 pm #76973March 25, 2023 at 3:29 pm #76979
