Just Having Artsy Fun

I thought I was going to share a very surprising little weedy flower with you today. Who can believe that something could still be blooming after many freezing nights, and last week's snow? But there were some little Herb Robert flowers blooming among the pines.

But the camera decided that I had intended to focus on... who knows what, and the pictures aren't worth looking at, really.

So, I decided to waste some time an play with the picture. And the truth is that the flower isn't even the most interesting thing in the picture... the leaves are. You can click this one to make it larger if you want.

Don't forget to come back for Blog Jog tomorrow (post will show just after midnight), and pick up your clue for the November contest.

pictures that turn out not so good can make for some very interesting art work. I've wasted lots of time doing that myself :) I like yours it look really neat.

The original is beautiful to me but I am biased :)

I still have violets and pansies blooming here, in spite of the cold. I actually went out and watered them yesterday! I figure they are trying, so I'll help them along. :)

I love that you found the beauty of this little flower still growing despite the cold. I really like the photo with the color enhancements, too.

Thanks for stopping by Mindful Banter during Blog Jog Day. It's a pleasure to meet you!

How thrilling to find something unexpected... :)

While I love your artistic work, very colorful, I have to admit I love the original as well. I like the realness of the photo.

Ann- your works inspire me to play once in a while. Your's come out really good.

Carol- the lonely little flower had a message, but the focus wasn't good.

Lin- Nothing here that I'm watering! Oops... I think I need to do the inside plants!

Hi RoxStar- Nice to meet you! Thanks for leaving a note.

Ivy- I live for unexpected! (the good ones anyway)

Jo- sometimes realistic is just too real. A little fantasy is required. Haha!
