Sepia Wednesday



This photo is of a lovely paperwhite bloom. I received the bulb just before Christmas in a thank you gift from my Horticulture Society President. It included a small bulb vase and some decorative stones. I inserted the bulb into the vase and filled the vase with water. It took only a few days before I saw the signs of roots emerging from the bulb bottom. Before long the roots filled the vase and the stems appeared from the top of the bulb. Within three weeks the metamorphosis of bulb to bloom took place. The flowers are lovely. The perfume is not. I remarked one day to my husband that I thought something was burning before I realized that it was the flower emitting its perfume. The flower is a welcome sight now in the land of snow. Hope you like it. I am always happy to hear your comments. Join the other sepia photos today at Sepia Scenes for Sepia Wednesday.  Valerie

This is a great project for kids too. It is quite a lesson in horticulture.
I am a big fan of sepia toned photos. I see them a lot in my genealogy research.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

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…
