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)
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.
Summer time helps bring out our Funky sides — don’t you think? I’m LOVIN these pots!
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.
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.
Susan at Southern Daydreamer is throwing her usual Out Door Wednesday party; come see who is showing up.
Waving goodbye to sweet HOT August 2009!! Even though the days are long, some how Summer is too short.

Stop and make a habit to find the Beauty and you will be amazed at how Beautiful your life is. Be thankful and remember:
