Spring in the Backyard – Touched Up


I shot and posted this image earlier but brought it back up for a little work.  Particularly the Flowering Crab and Daisy Plants.

Single Cone Plant


I found this image in my archives from April 2012. The plant was a bit haggard but, in my opinion, the color out weighed what might have been –  just another Cone Plant.

Well, Muffin, was caught dozing while protecting our flowers.  We did not put her on KP duty.

Early Spring 2017

I took this image on April 14th this spring from inside the house as it was to cool for me to go out.  I’m afraid it’s not as well focused as any of us would like  – particularly the Flowering Crab.  I worked with it a bit in Photoshop Elements 6 but was unable to improve it beyond what you see here.  Anyway, it was early morning light and the Flowering Crabs flower’s are a crimson red. On the left is a Lilac Bush which, at the time, had not blomed.

Large Hosta

This large Hosta, transplanted by my wife, Jean, from another part of our yard, is growing up against our garage.  It is really going to take over.
