The A to Z of the Bellevue Botanical Garden
Welcome back, Dear Reader, to the Worlds of A. Catherine Noon! I know, I’ve been very, very quiet of late, and I’m doing my best to get back to doing what Noony does best – writing! So in a way, this theme reveal is a way to kick-start my writing life, blogging, and in general just pick myself up by my suspenders and carry myself onto the page.
Why the Bellevue Botanic Garden?
The Bellevue Botanic Garden is a gem, right smack in the heart of Bellevue, Washington State, USA. It’s open free to the public and houses acres of local plants, exotic trees and flowers, and even not one but two Japanese garden features. There’s a suspension bridge and a forest of local trees.
Why the A to Z Challenge?
I’ve had so much fun in years past with challenges. I’ve done “The A to Z of the Zoo,” at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, Illinois, USA; “The A to Z of Letterforms in Nature and the Built Environment” on my companion craft blog, Knoontime Knitting: One Writers Journey Into 3D, and several other things both with themes and without.
Why a Theme?
Because it’s fun! I had so much fun, particularly with the Zoo and the Letterforms projects, that I wanted to reprise that for this year. I’m only doing one blog this challenge, because I’ve been so mute lately I didn’t want to overdo it, but I do have other ideas. For example, I’m thinking of making the Letterforms project into a book! But for this year, I wanted to ease myself back into blogging and out of the house. The Bellevue Botanic Garden is right here in the town where we live, not far from my office, and it’s open free – all things designed to get me out of my head, into the world, and onto the page.
What about you? Are you participating in the A to Z Challenge this year? If so, please share a link in the comments so I can come visit. And if you’re not, tell me what you’re looking forward to as part of the Challenge. And if you’ve never heard of the Challenge, tell me one thing you’re excited about whether you’re above the Equator and it’s now Spring for you, or below the Equator and it’s now Autumn. Talk to me!
