Sunlit Flowers

This is a bulb garden that I received for my birthday.  The sun was shining on it the other morning so I quick grabbed my camera and snapped some pictures.  Then I downloaded the latest version of Picasa and started playing with it.

This one is using the Vignette



 I don't think I did anything with this one




This is the focal black and white
 


Another Vignette



 I think I just highlighted this one a little.


I like the Focal B&W.  It just colors the focal point a little.  I used that in the post of my Thrift Store Tabletop Here but I had called it Soft B&W.  There is another edit called Soft Focus.

I am sharing these with Karen at My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday


Spring is in the air!  I hope you are all having a wonderful sunny weekend.

Until next time.

Hello Barb
I'll bet your spring bulb container smells heavenly. A nice birthday gift and it's in a good place to soak up the sun.

Flowers make any day sunny. Yours are just gorgeous.

Nice to visit you through Sunlit Sunday. I love meeting bloggers at the various parties.

P.S. Your mom is so adorable! How blessed you are, and I love her motto. I'll have to remember that one.

How lovely to have a bulb collection for your birthday. Hope you had a great day.

Yes, it looks like you're having fun with that! Spring has disappeared and left us with something that looks more like November than March - high winds, dark skies. A bulb garden would be a nice reminder of what's really supposed to be going on!

Hello, Barb
A bulb garden is just the perfect thing to tide one over until things start growing in the garden. I like how you experimented with different effects.

What fun these new cameras and photo editors are. Toys for grownup girls like us! Love all the variations on the flowers.
