A photo is posted and people who wish to join in are given a new number each week.
Whoever is number one follows the first photo by studying it and taking an idea from that photo as their subject for the photo they post.
For example it may be a city scene with buildings, transport, plants, colours, shapes, etc. The first person may choose to follow with a photo with a bus in it and then the next person, number 2 follows with something from the previous shot.
General Rules:
1. You are encouraged to take new photos wherever possible but sometimes that isn't practical. So, we would love to see how the theme inspired you, but if you have the perfect shot waiting in your computer just mark it ARCHIVE somewhere in the text.
2. Unless specifically requested, please refrain from critiquing other people's photos.
3. Restrict each photo to 600 pixels along its longest side and 400kb maximum per photo. (The lower the kb the more it would be appreciated.)

Your numbers are:
1. Joanne
2. Birgit
3. Cindy
4. Billie
5. Mary

Here are some garden ornaments spotted at a local garden nursery.

Great start with all the color Mary. I am sure it really brightened your garden space up.

Birgit, wow fabulous photo of a bee. Awesome follow

And, a brown one! I have only seen green ones here. I wonder if they are different species or different ages? Something to google!

Sorry for the delay girls, I'm following Billie's praying mantis with another one. Wayne was locking up at college and as he was closing the big doors he transferred this one from the door handle to his hand out to the bushes safely.
That's the end of the chain. Thanks everyone.
