The First Ones


After a longer than planned treatment at my dentist's yesterday, I wasn't up to anything else than lying down. Which is why my photo today is both my entry for Lisa's Creative Exchange and Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.

This photo shows one of the first "guests" on our balcony, as we decided to risk planting some flowers this weekend, even if it's still freezing during the nights. It's so great to have flowers again just outside the window and I'm sure you are going to see the whole lot over the next weeks...!

Although I liked the SOOC already, I added Kim Klassen's textures "sweettreat" and "sweettart" (one layer of each with a soft light blending mode, opacity of around 45 %) to link it up to the texture party today.

I hope you had a wonderful start into the week!

Just beautiful Rosie! Fantastic DOF!

I sure hope you are feeling better today. Even though I have a very sweet dentist, it is still one of my most un-favorite places to be.

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful day!

Isn't it wonderful to have color...something other than yellow and green? I bought a purple "African daisy" (Osteospermum) plant last week. I love them, anyway, and I thought I could keep one small plant in side for awhile. I just read the tag: "tolerates hot, dry conditions." Ha!

Sorry 'bout your dentist visit...this isn't the first one is it? You're having a tough go. Hope all is done and you're on the mend.
I really love this purple-so cheerful-one would never know you're not feeling 100%.
