I Went Shopping

I Went Shopping
Got lots of new colors
Several shades
Worked in the front yard
Dug some things out
Put new life in
Still working on it
Time ran out
Rain coming today
Tried to figure out
Still having trouble
This is what I ended with
At least you get an idea
Of what I am adding
To my Jungle ... Yard
And, in case you were
The birds were singing
All about these new colors
Talkative bunch of  feathers
That I have in my woods

How lovely! The collage looks wonderful!

I just bought PhotoShop Elements 8 (had version 5, so was quite out-of-date) and now I'm wishing I hadn't--there's so much new, it seems overwhelming.

I'm sure the birds were rejoicing with all that glorious colour!

Lovely flowers, lovely colors. Here in the desert, I am always torn between planting old favorites and native plants. I know I need to do the responsible thing, water-wise, but I figure I can always cart gray water from the house to the yard, right? Besides, it seems like roses, lilacs, and irises (my favorites) all do really well here, even in neglected-looking yards.

They are lovely. Working in the gardens is one of my favorite activities.

Those are great flowers - lots of color!

And I understand about the Photoshop - I am still figuring it out too - I can get ok stuff in only like 8 or 9 hours!

just beautiful, your garden will be a wash with color, I even detect alittle orange in there lol. I have potted alot but have to move them into my potting shed at nights too cold yet here for them to be left out. Hoping temps warm up soon, but I feel atleast two more weeks here in the northeast before I can get really serious.

All those colours! They're beautiful :)

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
