Sepia Scenes -Daylily Days

I grow many daylilies in the garden as they don't seem to mind the sandy soil. This photo was taken last summer. It seems to lend itself to a sepia photo.

This one was easy to do in Picassa.  Go to edit and effects and select focal black and white. 

Let me know if you think so also. For more sepia wonders visit Sepia Scenes at

the flower and foliage does look great in sepia but I like the second shot better. I have picasa and will try that. MB

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
