Milkweed

milkweed for TT n RJ

Another from my ‘Weeds’ photos. Wasn’t sure what this was so I googled it, and found that it is Milkweed.  Seems it’s important for Monarch Butterflies, Hummingbirds, and other species. I know when I was taking this, the bees were loving this weed/plant.

If interested in knowing more about the Milkweed, I found some info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asclepias and here: http://www.butterflybushes.com/milkweed.htm

On my photo, I started with one of Nancy’s textures as the background and added my photo on top with soft light overlay. I then applied the Dreamy technique that I’d seen in Kim’s tutorial on how to make your photo look dreamy. I didn’t do all the steps, and I don’t think mine turned out like hers. I then embedded a bird on a branch clip art from The Graphics Fairy, added a butterfly and a bee brush. Lastly, I applied kk_touchoftexture.

Springtime

Springtime Summertime

We’re suppose to get 6-8 inches starting tonight March 24 and then I’m really hoping that’s it. Looking forward to warmer weather and getting out and doing some Spring cleaning around the place, which also gets me some much needed exercise after the Wintertime cabin fever.

On another note: Happy Easter and ‘He Is Risen’. Enjoy the Easter Season with many blessings.
