Photoshop is my friend. This is not going to be a tutorial. It's mostly just a picture story. This post was decided upon last night after my darling looked at my new header and said, "Why don't you take some open blooms from the top and stick them in the middle?" Well, I didn't because that would be cheating and I don't cheat without telling you. I'm not that kind of gal.
This is what my azalea looks like on its best day. This best day just happened to be last year. I would've loved to use it for my header, but then people think that my neighbor's house is mine. That's cheating.
This is what the photo looked like before some judicious cropping.
I highly recommend judicious cropping.
Now this is a photo of my behind-the-garage forsythias. (John and I spent some time Sunday afternoon planting a whole lot of forsythia sprigs along his property line at the Ponderosa.) Anyway, this is the first shot. Note that ugly tree trunk protruding above the ugly fence to the left of the flag. Oh this fence is not my ugly fence. I've got enough ugly without claiming that thing.
Now let's lose the tree trunk and gain some green grass, too.
Looks like a hair transplant gone horribly wrong, but if I had time...
Have a fun Tuesday, Dear Ones!
P.S. This is a message for my dear friend Linda at Blue Gate Blog. I'm having such troubles getting to visit you. I keep getting this message. Just so you know that I do keep trying...
