Pretty in Pink

Gloxinia-with-crackerjack-textureLR

Kim’s Challenge this week was to use her texture called “Cracker Jack”  I really like the plastery feel of this texture.  The gloxinia was a gift from my husband’s uncle who knows that I love a pretty flower.   It has flowered off and on in it’s pot outside on a shelf on the fence.  I will be joining Kim Klassen Café for Texture Tuesday.    Valerie

What a pretty effect. I haven't had a gloxinia for many years - perhaps it's time to try them again.

Such a pretty and subtly coloured gloxinnia [?} and it looks great against the texture at its thickest setting.

My father grew gloxinia when I was a child, love your capture and texture enhancement.

The pink flower really pops against the textured background.

Looks wonderful. I love the brightness of the pink against the texture.

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…
