As Boring As Tree Bark

 

We have a couple of pretty birch trees.

The bark is extraordinary, so

I snapped some photos to show you.

Zoe thinks she lives in a rain forest...

I think she may be right

We have had record rainfall for June

Every single day I think

The weeds love it

Hydrangeas

image

Summertime is “Hydrangeas”. . .

 

image

Same photo...the first one has some texture added in Photoshop.

 

image

I love growing daisies and Calla Lilies . . . I’d have lots of them if the Japanese

Beetles would go back to Japan or somewhere . . .

My “Before & After” Dining Area

 

image

I spent my spare time yesterday and today spiffing up my blog using

some photos of my dining area...

image

I thought I wanted to use a blue background but ended up going back to a

turquoise color.

image

I edited a photo of my dining area in Photoshop.

The colors were edited in the above photo.

 

image

I did a lot of things to it...wish I could tell you what I did...

I do remember that I used a watercolor effect and crosshatching effect.

I thought it turned out pretty neat.

image

image

Birdhouse-------before & after!!!

image

It is the selective cropping that gets rid of my clutter Smile

I like the Photoshop version a lot better than the “before” version.

Wonder if I can make this area look like my edited photo???

image

Geezeee, if only redecorating was this easy!!!

A Moment

I don’t know where this week has gone...

it has flown by.

Aaaahhhhh, summertime, that’s the reason it goes by so swiftly.

It’s like a fleeing moment of freedom that

I don’t always stop to savor.

image

I did stop long enough to snap some photos of my hydrangeas...

Our heat will probably dry them up soon...

 

image

These were some wildflowers I spotted growing behind a

building where I was attending a meeting .

(Crazy lady running around with the camera looking

under, over and around things!!!)

I believe that they are Coreopsis.

image

image

You know that I wouldn’t be a true Southerner

if I didn’t have a few Magnolia photos!

 

image

Magnolias are beautiful but I never have wanted one in my yard.

I get leaves from neighbors’ yards and they are like

tough cardboard, they take forever to disintegrate and

usually have to be picked up by hand.

image

We always enjoy our Spiderwort plants...

They never need any care...just a little appreciation occasionally.

Have a beautiful weekend peeps!!!

Vibrance

 

image

I used the free Iced Blue Texture by Nine Acres Photo...actually I used it

three times, 100% soft light, 100% multiply and again at 52% soft light

and erasing the texture from the yellow petals. Then I made my mosaic

in Picasa.
