"thought is the blossom;
language the bud;
action the fruit behind it"

What a wonderful spring day! It was a little cold and not much sun, but that did not matter; we were at the Morton Arboretum for a photo walk!
Each week something new is blooming in their gorgeous gardens.
This week the cherry blossoms, red buds and the crab trees were in full bloom. I could spend the whole day walking with my camera at my side.
I am not sure if this spring is more spectacular than other years or is it that i am just seeing the beauty more thru the lens of my camera.
As we were walking, we discovered Daffodil Glen. There are literally thousands of daffodils in bloom. I am definitely going back this weekend with my tripod. I think there beauty will last only another week or so.
When i got home we had a meeting with our landscape designer. They worked on our front yard last fall and now we are about to start phase 2. They are finishing the front and putting a healing garden on our side yard. I can not wait for them to get started! What a perfect day!
When i finally got inside and sat down at my laptop, i found that the wonderful Kim Klassen had a tutorial for framing our photos in PSE. I used one of her techniques on my cherry blossom image. This frame creates soft dreamy edges around the image. I know this is something i will use often! Thank you again, Kim!
Until next time...
