My flowers this year are extravagant. I have upped the watering by 20 minutes and that has made the plants very happy. Happy enough to begin to fight with each other for space. Many of my plants are natives and they can usually outcompete the hyrids.
Below the first photo is monarda (beebalm) which with its square stem is related to the mint family, and most gardeners know how that goes!...and grows! The next photos are all of my tiger lily which can spread as a non-native, but which I am pretty sure I can control. It is very photographic or should that be photogenic? I had fun with software changing, adding textures, and dodging and burning below.
I always love it when you enhance these pictures.ReplyDelete
Love the original and a few of your artsy techniques! Keep on playing with photos!ReplyDelete
Great job on the photos, Tabor. I love the last one especially!ReplyDelete
Lovely experiments, thanks for showing us.ReplyDelete
Love your tiger lilies. And the bee balm native here is either white or pale lavender.ReplyDelete
Wonderful fun. I really am enjoying your experiments. Spectacular successes.ReplyDelete
So fun to watch your photo painting.ReplyDelete
I should have known that you would get tiger lilies right. Locally, people tend to call the common orange lilies tiger lilies. I am not sure if I've ever come across a genuine tiger lily. Those orange ones are plentiful though. Good job on the photos.ReplyDelete
Tiger lilies are one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
You are creating beautiful artworks. Maybe The Artists Way would help you explore that more, i've tried it in the past and gotten through a good bit of it.ReplyDelete
You are an artist in my book. Perhaps we all are to some extent in our own way.ReplyDelete
Love these images, Tabor! The colors are scrumptuous, so vibrant they jump off the screen and danceReplyDelete
