Blossom Beauty

More apple blossoms!

I deconstructed my Mother’s Day bouquet from my daughter and had a great time photographing the flowers individually and small groups- my idea of fun!


In Bloom

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I looked through my recent photos and decided to break with tradition and go with pink instead of green for today. I took these shots of the blossoms on our plum tree before we left for Palm Springs.  I guess this was a smart move, because, now that we are back, the blossoms are all gone.

Orange and Pink

20160302-MMA_9324_melinda_anderson-EditI think it was last year at this time that I discovered that Trader Joe’s sold ranunculus, my favorite childhood flower. I went looking for them the other day and discovered just a few almost wilted bunches. I picked one in shades of hot pink and orange to take home to enjoy for a few days. I took them outside for the sidelit, golden hour shot above.

20160302-MMA_9313_melinda_anderson-EditI love how tightly the petals are nestled on this dark pink beauty.

I’m no longer a child, but I still love these beautiful flowers.

Ranuncu-LOVE

I had a photo already to post today, but then I came upon these ranunculus photos in Lightroom that hadn’t yet made my blog- one edited and one not.  I had fun editing the second one to kinda-sorta match the first- so here they are!

20150507-MMA_4728_melinda_anderson-Edit20150507-MMA_4723_melinda_anderson-EditEditing notes:  I really need to start consistently labeling my layers in Photoshop. I could tell I added a filter to a layer in the first photo- and then some texture (which comes in with a label automatically).  I assumed I used Topaz Impression- but which filter??? No idea.  For the second one I used Cezanne II, one of my favorites.  And another thing- is there a way to mark favorites in Impression? Anyone, anyone?


Denouement

My peonies have bit the dust, but here are a couple more images from their glory days.

Tomorrow or sometime later in the week I will post a couple images of their last days.

My lensbaby class officially begins today, plus I have FOUR meetings this week- so, over the next week or two, you will be seeing some photos from the (mostly recent) archives.


My Friday Flower

Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

I bought a bouquet of white gerberas yesterday. When I got home I discovered this bright pink one tucked away between the others. Sweet!
