Fall Flowers...

(desat 50%, Kim's benjamin texture, lighten, 30% opacity)

A friend from church buys flowers for the foyer table each Sunday.

(desat 30%, Kim's 1301 texture, lighten 30%)

This week she gave them to me after church.

(desat 30%, Kim's urban texture, add, 30%)

Mums and roses in fall colors, so lovely.
I'm blessed to be able to enjoy them in my home!

  1. I'm a lover of textures that are easy to see...and I LOVE your last image of the mums, especially. I'm holding on to summer as long as I can, although we had 4 nights of temperatures in the high 20's....and the delicate, susceptible flowers are no more. That included my 8 dahlia plants, which hadn't bloomed yet! I think I might have saved two smaller plants...I hope.

    1. When I edited the photos the last photo of the mums was my least favorite, but it's growing on me! It's been so hot and dry here and we are smelling the smoke from the forest fire southeast of Portland. The nights and mornings are cool, however, so I do know that fall is almost here.

    1. Michelle, I just told Evelyn, in the comment above yours, that it was my least favorite when I edited the photos, but it's growing on me!

    1. Wow! Thank you for your generous encouragement! I'm not too much into the technical aspects of editing and do what appeals to me creatively.

  5. Oh, what a beautiful arrangement! I love those colours. All your images are wonderful, but I think my favourite is the last one. Or maybe the second last one!

    1. Jill, the last one, the one I thought was not my best, is everyone's fav! Funny how that happens.

  6. The yellow roses are all kinds of lovely and they look great against the white mums.
