Photo on Friday #2

So Spring, has it appeared in your neighbourhood yet or are you in a completely different hemisphere and facing Autumn and Winter.

Haven't really seen much evidence of Spring yet, the primroses and primula's are out in the garden and there are some tiny unfurled leaves on the roses and plum and apple tree.  The dawn chorus is starting at about 5.00am which I always love to hear. So Spring is on its way, but its a bit shy, just peeping out, just checking whether its safe to come out and play.

This was taken last year one frosty morning. You can see the water droplets on the flowers and the frost on the leaves.  Yellow is a colour I struggle with, but this soft pale lemon with just a touch of acid green stamen, the flush of purple on the stalk and the variegated greens of the leaves, well it makes me feel happy.

The filters I've added give a softness, but also a sharpness and an intensity that makes those colours sing and shout SPRING IS COMING!

So what to create inspired by this photo?  A scrapbook page for the photo, a textured background using the colours, fabric to present the furriness of the leaves? All possibilities.

What would you create?


  1. What a beautiful photograph, can't wait to see what you create with it or based one it!

  2. Another stunning photo! Like Helen I look forward to seeing where you take this inspiration. Love the bits of purple against the green.
