Black and White Wednesday - "More Flowers"

flowers tulips 066 blog

This week I'm all about flowers. Maybe because the forecast is rain for about 7 days and I keep looking at my garden with reassuring glances. "Soon my lovely things.....I'll clean you up and keep you company soon."

These are two tulips we rescued before the rains came. Yesterday I posted them in color and I guess I'm in a soft mood because I converted them softly as well. My normal style of - 'bam, in you face contrast' just wasn't calling to me this week.

Besides, I was having too much fun with textures which lends itself to a softer processing, don't you think?

We have a long week-end coming up so I'm hoping the rains will stop and I can talk everyone into a family version of "let's get this party garden started".

These are beautiful Wanda. I love the softness you added. They look like something you would paint on a canvas. :-)

Hope the rain finally stops and allows you to work in your garden. We have the other extreme down rain in sight. It's as if we lived worlds apart.

Happy Wednesday to you!!

Oh, your cat photo! Just gorgeous. Our irises are blooming, looking stunning. But only on one side of our house. The irises on the other side of the house look like they are two days from death. Go figure.
