angels at the window



One of my favorite annuals -- angelonia -- in a traditional iron hay rack window planter that I found at a rummage sale for $12... :)

Beautiful, Mary!

I've noticed, with our five barns, that the red bokeh is so very, very pretty. =]

I was just thinking of you - thinking of coming for a visit - trying to think outside of the box - looking for inspiration - or, maybe, I'm looking for a little familiar comfort.;) Lightroom has opened things up but the freedom is a little disconcerting. I've been "locked in my room" trying to figure it all out and learning A LOT! Fun stuff - even if it is challenging.

Oh, and I looked up the house at the top of the hill in the realtors websites but was appalled at the photography and haven't sent it, yet. =D and ;)

It's good to hear from you!!!

Ph, my goodness, Mary. This is awesome. The texture work is sheer perfection. I adore the pink. Sorry I have not been stopping by this summer, but I have really been working hard on my photography and using my other photography blog. Hope you have been having a nice summer and not too. hot. Genie

Mary said...

Thanks, everyone!

Katy, you will have to tell me how you like Lightroom...

Genie, nice to see you! I'll come visit soon. :)

Your photos are absolutely amazing!

So glad I found you in the summer issue of “Artful Blogging” magazine!

Your article about making art being a powerful compulsion really inspired me! I, too, have always loved nature; nature motivates my paintings. I could also identify with what you wrote about blogging being a driving force in your life, pushing you to research and learn new technical skills.

I am your newest blog follower. :)
Looking forward to seeing your upcoming posts!

I welcome you to check out my art blog, too!
Best,

Hello Mary, I've just popped over from Bronteland in Yorkshire, England, to visit a few other people's gardens - as ours is deluged by heavy summer rain! I happened upon your beautifully-named blog and found it a lovely, elegant place with wonderful, subtle images.
Thank you for sharing; I'll be back :-)
