Crocus are Blooming!


A few days ago I took this shot of some of my crocus, while just a few steps away my dog, Casey lay in the snow.  She's in a bit of a panic because she loves the snow and knows it's going fast so any chance she gets she lays on it or walks through it.

Kim's challenge this week for Texture Tuesday is 'flower power' so these little guys came up just in time.  I used a bit of a comic sketch filter on the image, added a layer of Kim's kk-2203 texture at a soft light blend mode of 60% opacity and then I added the text on an eliptical shape as Kim demonstrated this week in Beyond Beyond.

  9. Fun edit Linda! I remember when I lived in the burbs of Chicago I would throw a handful of crocus in my yard and plant them where they landed. Bulbs here don't work so much unless you want to use your fridge for 6 weeks to store them! haha (before planting)

    1. Thanks Kim. That's funny, I had never thought about the fact that they need some cold time to do well. I guess there is a perk to this cold winter after all.
