The Green Thumb In The Family
I have a headache THIS BIG so I’m keeping this short and sweet. Well, maybe. By the way, being a grown up with a job sucks. Take me back to 2000, por favor.
I spent my entire Sunday with Big Bro’s family. I love his family, every one of them, even the angry one. It was only me and my brother growing up and I love seeing how his kids, ages 14 down to 2, get along and love one another. Or fight. That’s pretty fun to see too. What a deterrent.
Bro’s wife is an amazing woman – not only can she corral their monkeys and clown on DAd, but she’s an awesome cook and is quite the gardener. I think she’s the only one of us that has a green thumb. I try. And I fail. Repeatedly. But not the sister-in-law – she still had several blooms around the yard. And you know how I like to photograph flowers.
I especially liked these. I think she said they are cone flowers. I heart them. A lot. I want some now. Maybe if I get enough weeds out of the flower beds this fall, they’ll be nice and clear to plant some cone flowers of my own in the spring. I said maybe.
Several of these flowers were in bloom. So soft and pretty. Love the little bud hanging out in the back. Roses? Are these roses? I am terrible at identifying Plantae.
The funny thing about this shot is my big bro was commenting on the witch hanging in the window. I don’t see a witch. All I see is the sky reflecting on the window. And it is so cool against that itty bitty bloom. Love it.
I’m a complete Photoshop junkie. Contrast and saturation are my friends. Gave them a little boost on PS and BOOM! look at that color! I really really like these flowers. Sister-in-law, I may be bugging you come April to help me remember what they’re called.
