Rudbeckia for Texture Tuesday

 

Textured black eye susans

Does the summer seem like it is going too fast.  It just seems like the flowers are in a hurry to bloom.  Will there be anything left in September?   The Rudbeckia or Black (Brown) Eyed Susans are in bloom now.  It may be a senior moment but I thought they bloomed in August.

For Texture Tuesday Kim asked us to use two of her textures for this weeks theme.   I used Reverie and Scratches and then added a little whimsy with a butterfly brush.

It's been such a weird summer, Valerie - everything is so far ahead of schedule. I'm worried too that there will be nothing left. But then we can't complain about a summer that started so early - remember March?

Love, love love your processing! Perfect for the composition of that photo!
You echoed my thoughts exactly about the speed with which the flowers are blooming and concerns about anything being left for fall...my raspberries are almost done!

I was wondering the same thing, Valerie. My Rudbeckia has just started to open and it's so early this year. Great photos.

Everything has bloomed earlier than normal here because of our unusual early spring. I love your virtual butterfly. It's been so hot here, not even the black-eyes susans have liked it!

Really like how you have processed this and your little butterfly brush is a very nice touch!

I've always loved Black-Eyed Susans - haven't seen one for years. I love the overlay with the butterfly - perfect!
