Spring is finally here .... and so is the pollen.  The pine trees were releasing big billowing clouds of  pollen this morning and everything is covered in green dust.

The first poppy in my garden decided to pop open.  I only have one blossom, but it is a beauty.  I went to the local garden center on Mothers Day and wandered around taking photos of flowers, and found more poppies there.

Happy Memorial Day weekend  - I hope it is lovely wherever you are.

Photo Art featuring a horizon

This week Bonnie, the host of Photo Art Friday at Pixel Dust Photo Art, suggested creating and posting a piece of photo art featuring a horizon.   I enhanced and saturated the colors of my photograph of a boardwalk at a salt marsh located in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  I added a postcard from the Graphic's Fairy and an opaque layer of texture.  Then I added a border from pixlr (another free photo editing software).  I chose this photo as my horizon subject because it looks like the boardwalk is never ending as it disappears into the horizon. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Photo Heart Connection for April

Twas the last day of April

And all through the local garden shop

Nature was stirring and starting to pop

When in the middle of the perrenials there arose such a clatter

We took a closer look to see what was the matter

When what to our  wonderous eyes should appear
But a mother robin flying out and her beautiful eggs so dear

Happy Wonderous Spring - my April photo heart connection...
