After a divorce our son had to move back home for a bit. While here, he purchased bulbs and planted these Lilies. They have multiplied over the years and are getting so tall. Every Spring it is a delight to watch them finally open up to reveal their amazingly beautiful red color. He couldn’t have picked a better color as it is one of my favorites. That son has since remarried and moved to California, but my eyes love looking at him through these flowers each year. I miss him, but what a great reminder of the wonderful man (son) he has turned out to be. Such a loving heart.
I did transplant some of the bulbs early this Spring and was glad to see they have also made it and are blooming.
Applied Mona’s free texture called Muse and left it as ‘normal’, and then I drew an elliptical and manipulated it so that my tulip flower shows through opening in the elliptical. This was accomplished by making the elliptical a new layer with a layer mask.

Sharing with Floral Love a picture of this gorgeous planter of Petunias that my oldest son and family brought me on Mother’s Day among other presents. I used one of Mona’s textures ~ 04 Angelic Aqua and applied the picture on top of it rather than blending since I thought it made a great frame.
Give a visit over at Mona’s Picturesque to see what lovely flowers others are sharing for this Wednesday meme. 🙂
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by my Photography Patch.
Sharing ~ over at Floral Love ~ a photo of one of my favorite flowers from my garden a few Summer’s ago ‘The Dahlia’ . This photo I’m sharing is straight out of camera..no texturizing. I just loved how it turned out with the water droplets adding to the loveliness of the flower. (and as always if you click on the picture you’ll get a better view of the photo)
Love how hardy the Dahlia is plus the fact you can save the bulbs to replant the next year.
Visit Mona’s Picturesque for all the Floral Love that is happening. I only wish we could smell the awesome fragrances that would be emitted from that site with all the lovely floral offerings.
Love that you stopped by and come back soon.

But below is thee most Precious Floral Love of all. When my grandbabykins brings me these flowers and says…”grandma I picked these for you”
I love Dahlias ~ any color ~ so thought that would be perfect for this week’s Floral Love over at Mona’s Picturesque. Using a picture I had taken of a Dahlia from my Garden a couple of summers ago, I made an overlay of the Dahlia part and applied it to a texture I received from French Kiss Collections.
