Tuesday Muse

We planted a second lilac bush last year because our original one just isn't enough for me.   I love lilacs in all phases of blooming, but this new one has me more than a little happy with its beautiful deep color.   We didn't plant anything this year but I'm already thinking another lilac is going to be in order next time we head to the nursery.




This photo is fun to play with using textures and other edit features in PicMonkey.   The one thing that challenged me is the water spots on the leaves that I could NOT clone out, try as I might.   Beth, help!!!   I shall try again.

Enjoy your Tuesday.

P.S.   I was reading blogs today and a photographer whom I admire has an offer on his website if anyone is interested.   His photos are amazing, even if you aren't interested in his tutorial.   But if you are, he offers $20 off if you order now.   Because I love landscape photos, I am quite interested in his editing techniques.    http://www.stuckincustoms.com/landscape-and-travel-photography-tutorial-new-zealand/

I love Lilacs, here in the Netherlands we still have to wait a bit before they bloom. Beautiful edit on your purple lilac!

That's an amazingly deep shade of purple for a lilac -- can't wait to see the flowers. Lovely shots Denise.

I have leaf buds only on our lilacs. I know it will be another month before we have flowers.

Oh, I love lilacs - their scent is heavenly. Love the colors on yours right now. Ours are covered in snow, but soon they will be blooming!

I love lilacs too, but our yard it too small for them. :( I usually have to mooch some off the neighbors to stick in a vase in the house.
