The Cactus that my sister gave me last year has bloomed. I never knew they had such pretty blossoms, and I’m lovin it because I’m just not a green thumb and when anything blooms, well, I’m amazed! lol

Love From The Son

First Lilly 2014 for FL

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.

Sharing my first Lily Bloom of 2014 with Floral Love.

I ran an action from The Coffee Shop Blog called Coffee Shop Art Gallery, and used a free texture from Pixabay that Rita at the Coffee Shop also shared a link to on her site, and you can find the texture here http://pixabay.com/en/texture-artisan-acrylic-traditional-319740/.

The frame is one that comes loaded with Adobe Photoshop IE.

Thanks for visiting.

I’m also sharing one of my free textures that I make. You can download it HERE without my Logo watermark or just click the photo below.

Tulip Love

Tulip Love for Floral Love

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.

Happy Floral Love Wednesday

Here’s a link I found with some Tulip history that I found kind of interesting. Did not know there was such a thing as ‘Tulip Mania’ and eventually some went broke over their investment in Tulips. Click Tulip history or here’s the link also http://www.ehow.com/about_6690094_meaning-tulip-flower.html

Petunias for Mama

Mom Day Flwr for Floral Love

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. 🙂

Dahlia Droplets

Dahlia dew drops

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.

for Floral Love on Mona's

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.

See original picture below:
