These marigolds are kinda cheery, yeah? I’m not a huge fan, but the larger ones are kinda’ nice. They’re supposed to ward off bugs if you want to plant them around your tomatoes. (The scent isn’t real pleasant.)
Here’s a tiny zinnia I shot in a neighbor’s yard the other day. I deliberately blurred the background and applied a bit of texture so the bloom would stand out. Textures are from Florabella.
I can’t remember the name of this one–pink bellflower?–but thought it was sweet:
I’m kind of partial to pink flowers, so be warned. ; )
Well, I’m at the end of the free trial period for PSE 8 (Photoshop Elements 8) so will take the plunge and purchase it. Soooo much cheaper than the full-blown Photoshop and perfectly adequate for my needs. I got used to using free stuff like Photoscape and Picasa, so this is a nice bonus.
Have a good one!
