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 raspberries are almost done!
Gorgeous ♥ Textures are perfect!

It is going horribly fast! Why does winter never seem to go as quickly??

Pretty flowers ~ happy Tuesday!

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!

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

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…
