Lilac

I'm having fun exploring patterns in Photoshop Elements after Kim's post in Beyond Layers today.

I just planted a lilac bush like this in my garden last week.  Mine's not in bloom, but this photo was taken of a similar, more mature bush.  I love the white edges on the blossoms.  I can't wait until mine starts blooming as it matures!

    1. Thanks Janet. It is lovely isn't it. I've always been drawn to variegated leaves in plants and these blossoms captured my interest as soon as I saw them.

    1. Thanks so much. I too love the look and smell of lilac. In fact, there's a large bush on them down the road from us and when I drive by I have to open my window so I can enjoy the fragrance!
