Maryland Blogger: Blooming in the Rain

Blooming in the Rain

Blooming in the Rain


When you need some blog topics, simply take your camera for a photowalk. Your photographs will provide blog ideas for you. And, It is always a good idea to have one or more photographs in your blogs. I suspect that many of my followers are more interested in my photographs than what I might have written.

We have a very rainy day in Maryland. It is not the best weather for the scheduled open houses in Kentlands.

Hi Roy,

Roy, Actually i am interested in both the flowers and the article you wrote as a post. I do try to have at least one photo in every post.

I usually have a camera nearby, but still I miss some great opportunities when I have left it behind!

You always need to have your camera in hand for those special moments.

I'm starting to carry my camera everywhere now Roy Kelley and you have inspired me to do so.

I am always interested in what you have to say.  You are always kind to everyone and share some great stories.  The flower photos are just icing on the cake.

Hi Roy,

Good post and photo. We are receiving a fair amount of rain here too, which is good we need it.

Posted by Steve Higgins (RE/MAX Kelowna) almost 4 years ago

That is a wonderful suggestion, Roy. I always keep my camera handy.

We have a rainy Monday morning in Kentlands but the birds were singing when I went out to pick up The Washington Post. Have an outstanding week.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) almost 4 years ago

That is a good idea to help inspire new ideas. Your photos are some of the best.

Hi Roy --- the creative opportunities are abundant when a camera is in hand. This is a good reminder to those of us who sometimes wonder where an idea can grow and inspiration to those who are just getting ready to plant their blogging seeds.

I'll admit it - I always go to your blog to see what beautiful picture you have put up that day.  But I'm still interested in what you have to say!

Your comments are always welcome and are very much appreciated. Have an outstanding week and a very productive spring.
