Lilac Time

Miss Kim Lilac with KKawaken texture

This week for Texture Tuesday we were asked to use a texture by Kim Klassen called Mini May for our photo.   I chose awaken from the set of three and added them twice with a few adjustments along the way.  The lilac grows in my front garden and is loaded with bloom this year.  I must prune it though as it is taking over this little garden at the front of the house.  The tag said it would be a dwarf variety and it isn’t tall but she is getting like my waistline in girth.  Both of us could use a little dieting.    Ha Ha. 

I am joining Kim Klassen for Texture TuesdayTexture Tuesday.    Hope you are having a great day.



The lilacs have been wonderful this year, and are just starting to drop now.
Beautiful Val. The lilacs this year have had a heavenly scent, the backyard smells wonderful. Take care, Jen
My lilacs are just starting to open and I know what you mean about 'Miss Kim'. My PW 'Bloomerang' appears to have died. :-(

What a beautiful photo! Well worth printing and framing, I'd say. Our lilacs are gone, but I certainly enjoyed them while they lasted.

What a beauty this is!

How pretty! I wish my lilac had done well this year - it was pretty thin. I'll have to try a pruning such as Judith recommended on her post and see if it helps for next year.
I do love lilacs and you've certainly done this one justice with your gorgeous photo.

so beautiful - I love the image, the colours are gorgeous, and you have used the texture to wonderful effect.
I must admit that I haven't had time to play around with textures lately, and am so far behind in Kim's Beyond2. Oh well.
Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by my blog this week.

So beautiful, Valerie! The Korean lilacs are very sweet and delicate but I have seen them get quite large. Since our lilacs have been over for almost a month, it's a treat to see this.

Wishing you a great week!

I love lilacs but in our yard many of them has died during the winter, I don't know why. Wonderful edit.

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…
