Color Blast

Suttle stream RS

After Winter’s  cold and frost, we  look forward to Spring with each little bud that raises it’s head; bringing new hope as all Springs do. I have always thought that Spring and Fall were my favorite seasons; but this year’s Summer, because of a very very rainy Spring, was particularly green and abundant with fantastic color blasts. I love living so close to the pulse of the seasons.

Mother Nature delights us with each flower that grows to it’s fullest potential. Spring metamorphosis‘ into Summer with excitement. (join others at Susan’s Metamorphosis Monday)

 

Purple Before RS

Here is a little Metamorphosis example- SOOC (straight out of camera)

With a little help from Picnik – Add some “Boost” and Vignette”  (little darker edges) — don’t forget to SAVE AS.

In my creative dreams, this is how I would like to water color. 

Funky Pots RS

Summer time helps bring out our Funky sides — don’t you think? I’m LOVIN these pots!

Daisy Yard RS

As I took a drive late one over cast evening… I came upon this bounty of daisies! I often perform dangerous dashings from my car just to get a shot. One of these days someone is going to run me over; but I could not pass this  by with out capturing this lovingly tended yard. Yes, some times I am a fool for beauty.

Tire Swing RS

Do you supose the owner of this tire swing would mind if I took it for a Summer evening ride?

I can imagine that perhaps an 8 year old little darling could probably kick my butt if i tried.

Waving goodbye to sweet HOT August 2009!! Even though the days are long, some how Summer is too short.

    Gorgeous photos!  Love the clarity of color.  My favorite is the tire swing, it reminds me of my childhood.  Thank you for stopping by my  blog and leaving a comment, I have never seen a jelly fish IRL, either, but I don’t know that I would touch it if I did.  Little boys will do most anything, though, eh?  Hugs, Cindy S. 

  3. Stunning photos…of course I just love the black eyed susan’s. You have some magical eye!

    Hi Claudia!
    Oh do you remember the days of the tire swing. Alot of problems were solved in my swing going high into the air. I used to imagine I was an angel and I was flying everywhere. I so love that pic. Memories for sure. The flowers were so beautiful. You have such an eye with that camera. I thank you for sharing. Stop by and say hi, as I love to have you visit. Country hugs and love sweetie, Sherry

  7. Hi Claudia,
    Those a gorgeous pictures, and what wonderful colorful gardens. I too love the painted pots, have done that myself for my deck, but onlyin blue. I’m inspired by that photo to  branch ouy and add some other colors, I think!
    Thanks for stopping by and viewing my sky pics. Come back soon!
