Lisianthus, studied



I ran Pioneer Woman's "Lovely and Ethereal" and "Soft and Faded" actions on this macro of a lisianthus.  I am seriously in love with the part where the stem attaches to the flower.  Doesn't it look like long, graceful green fingers caressing the petals?  

Or maybe I need to tweak my meds.  ;)

Happy Monday, dear bloggers.

These actions are wonderful. Such a soft..artsy...old time appeal.

I agree about the meds. Anything that can make you so cheerful on a Monday should be shared with the world. Personally, I love the shadows at the top of the blossom!

No med tweakin' needed baybee, cos I knows zactly whatcha mean.

However, I have no idea where I channeled all that slang!

It's gorgeous, Mary.
