Feather-like Tulip (Macro Monday)

The tulips have been absolutely stunning here this year. The colored tulips all having various shades throughout the bloom rather than the one block color. Simply glorious!

The background of this photograph has me more than a little intrigued as nowhere in this house is this color. Not that I’m complaining at all as it blends beautifully with my tulip!

Sunflower Freedom (Macro Monday)

This summer I’m toying with the idea of planting sunflowers in our yard. Just where in our yard I have no clue as technically we only have the one unsuitable flower bed.

As I look at this sunflower that was growing randomly in a field, it makes me wonder if I should simply sprinkle sunflower seeds across the backyard and let nature take care of the rest!

Lovin’ the Pink (iPhriday Flowers)

The stunning colour in this flower which was surrounded by so many promising buds, more than caught my attention whilst wandering the Brisbane Botanical Gardens earlier this year.

Once again I’m lovin’ this opportunity offered by Lisa over at GrayDaysandCoffee for iPhone photos. It’s such a hoot playing with images on the phone!

Friday Night Flower (iPhriday Flowers)

This geranium was just one of the six in the mixed bunch of flowers Hubby brought home last Friday night. They were simply beautiful.

Spider Agapanthus (iPhriday Flower)

Around our apartment at present, scattered amongst all the other plants in the garden beds, are all these wonderful flowering Spider Agapanthus.

For whatever reason, I tend to find the Spider Agapanthus plant very reassuring… I know, bizarre but true, lol!

 

 

 

 

the ONE FOUR challenge: Week 3

Seriously, altering just one photo to produce four different looks doesn’t sound that difficult does it? WRONG… hence the word CHALLENGE!

Here here is my week three of the Captivate Me’s One Four Challenge.

One Four - Week 3

One would think when you look at this photo is that all I’ve done is simply changed the colour. Yet to get this end result I seemed to have tweaked EVERYTHING – Highlights, Shadows, Tint, Vibrance, Clarity, and even a little Angling was thrown into the mix. Too funny!
