the pink edition...

 "the earth laughs in flowers"
~ralph waldo emerson~

It seems like this quote is so true especially this spring.  Everywhere you look we are seeing amazing colours.  And the speed at which the flowers are popping is just amazing!  We have had record breaking heat here in the midwest. 
It has been great working out in the yard.  I was cleaning out one bed that has many jedi viburnum that are just starting to pop open.  It was such a treat to pull weeds while smelling their perfume.  I just could not get enough of their magical aroma!
Our prompt this week from Kim Klassen is the colour pink.  I tried hard to photograph something other than flowers, but i just could not resist their beauty!

I used a levels adjustment to brighten up image and applied a flare spot.  I applied Kim's wonderful florish and february magic texture using the screen mode both at about 35% opacity.  I was trying to give my image a soft dreamy look. 

I am linking up with

Seeing all these wonderful images will inspire you to pick up your camera and shoot!

Until next time...


  1. This is Beautiful, I see all these cup shots, I need cups and saucers. I love how the blossoms stick out with everything else being white.

  2. This looks so pretty! Flowers are my favorites for photographs too :)

  3. I'm in IL too and last week's hot spell caused everything to pop into bloom. So beautiful - it was like living in the south.
    Gorgeous cup and viburnum (At least that's what I think it is)
