I haven’t done Texture Tuesday’s lately where I share here and over at Kim Klassen’s Cafe some images I post process with Kim’s great textures. Today’s been rainy and I’ve been in a creative mood listening to blues and jazz so I was inspired to share some of the wonderful flowers I’ve enjoyed this spring and summer here in Charleston and up at Brookgreen Gardens. Each has two layers of textures (reverie & love in layers). I don’t like to do a lot of post processing but with some photo’s it just works! I’ve also finally jumped on the instagr.am wagon so if you would like to come over and check out my daily photo’s you can find me there as hkpowers and it’s a lot of fun, I also love the square format which I’ve been told “works” with my sense of composition!
These four white summer stunners are favorites. I couldn’t grow Gardenia or Jasmine in the DC metro area but their fragrances are locked into my memory of summer and take me back to my days of living in Savannah and upstate GA where we had Gardenia’s growing outside our bedroom windows. The sent of both is divine, but my all time favorite flower is Gardenia. A few years ago I was lucky to be in Argentina on my birthday and they were blooming, what a wonderful birthday gift! All of these are just about done blooming down here in zone 8 but we still have lot’s of other summer bloomers on the way. What’s blooming where you live today?
