A special friend sent these to me for my birthday…..so pretty and in colors I love. Thank you, Shelley.
I kept looking at the bouquet all week. What I noticed was that the vase was just crammed with flowers, each vying for attention. The dozen long stemmed pink roses would have been more than sufficient. But then I do love hydrangea and stargazer lilies.
The more I thought about it, the more I thought about the importance each flower plays. The roses, hydrangeas and stargazers are the stars, like the kids in school who were the most popular. Then there were some type of Asiatic lilies in the group too…..those wanna be's from school….not as spectacular but nice too. The lemon leaves and wax flowers were there to fill out the bouquet, but they are just as important ….. they were the ones with the spectacular grades. Then there were the tiny white carnations….they were the ones I made friends with….they were loyal and steadfast friends. They are still here when the rest of the bouquet has been tossed. They smile at me every morning. They give me a peaceful, easy feeling.
So….for Texture Tuesday and Be Still I did a little photo shoot with my good friends, the carnations. I used Kim's "Hazey" preset, took it into PS and added the text.

They are my good friends.
