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.

Gorgeous lilacs and perfectly processed too!

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.
