Textured forsythia

Just a quick post today, as we’re getting ready for a trip to New York and I spent two hours in the dentist’s chair again. Fun and games!

I shot this forsythia yesterday….

Forsythia original

Thought it might look more interesting with some texture, so I used one from Flora Bella (soft light blending mode, 89% opacity):

 “Forsythia is pure joy. There is not an ounce, not a glimmer of sadness or even knowledge in forsythia. Pure, undiluted, untouched joy.”

~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Hope your day is going well.

    They are both beautiful shots and I really enjoy the processing on the second but I think the original is my favorite! It is just lovely!

    I love forysthia as well. I like the photo with the texture, looks like cobwebs.
    The dentist again… Bah, too bad. I have never been to New York. Would really love to go one day.

    Have fun in NY. So I guess the forsythia is what I have in my garden. I inherited it, but did not inherit an innate knowledge of plants so I’m trying to figure it all out.

    • Yes, it looks like forsythia, Jennie. You inherited some good stuff! I had to buy a book on gardening when I lived in Virginia, because I had never seen a lot of the plants before. Then I moved to California and had to learn a whole new type of plants. I even knew the Latin names, but they are escaping me rapidly.
