I have been waiting and waiting to get photos of the old southern cottages, in my little part of the world, during Spring. Not only are the cottages nostalgic of days gone by, but their gardens reflect the love put into them! There are quite a few of these beauties, so over the course of the next few weeks I will be adding them to the IPhriday Photo Challenge. No respectable southern cottage is good without a porch to sit and drink Sweet Tea on!

Enjoy the IPhriday Photo Challenge! Post a photo taken with your Phone on Fridays! It is great fun getting outside to see what is going on!

IPhriday Photo Challenge: Plum Ready

Weather Wednesday; I have a Plum tree in my front yard and it is beginning to leaf, Plum. So I got out there and took a photo with my IPhone! I love Spring, but the weather outlook, here in the south, goes from the 50’s (Winter) to the high 70’s (Spring) overnight. There is not a gradual warming up. So, I am now Plum ready for the high 90’s (Summer) which will start at the end of the month, right after Easter, or sooner!  I added a photo edited in the Waterlogue App on my IPhone for use as a Spring note card! Better get the photo since my tree thinks it is still Spring!

PS Thursday Weather Update: Today it was in the 80’s!

Enjoy the IPhriday Photo Challenge! Post a photo taken with your Phone on Fridays! It is great fun getting outside to see what is going on, even if you’re burning up on March 11th! But, I’m not complaining, I’m just HOT!

I’ve been walking the neighborhood looking for signs of spring. Not to be disappointed, here is what’s blooming in my neck of the woods! Camellias were named after Georg Josef Kamel, a Moravian Jesuit priest. Who knew? Raise your hand!

And then there is the Nest!

As usual I applied the Waterlogue App and Brushstroke App to make my notecards for Spring! I just love these Apps on my phone! I know, I know I say that every week, but it is so true!  I feel so artistic, because in real life, I can’t even draw stick men well! With these Apps just click and choose your look! I especially liked the look of the Brushstroke App on The Nest!  It really gives some character to that nest!

There used to be several painted benches around the two block Main Street of my town. Now since I have been getting out and exploring for the IPhriday Photo Challenge I see the painted benches are being replaced with wrought-iron benches with dedication markers. I went looking for the “LOVE” bench for a Valentine Post only to see it had been replaced. I got as far as Ben & Jerry’s before I saw the last two remaining painted benches hugging the exterior of the ice cream shop. It was as if they were saying,”no, don’t take us too!” So I thought I’d better get a quick photo snap before they are gone! The Good Ol Days are quickly being gobbled up!

As usual I painted my photo in the Waterlogue App and in Brushstroke, since they are my favorite IPhone Photo Apps! I’ll use the Waterlogue design photo for my notecard!

I live in a pastel neighborhood.  All the cottages are painted like Easter Eggs, except for two colors, which are allowed. Yes, we have to get permission to change our cottage colors! Anyway, the exception to the pastels are Navy Blue and Periwinkle, a lightish purple color.

I love using some of the IPhone Apps to change the way my pictures look.  I use some of my photos to make greeting or note cards. This photo, taken in January, turned out especially well for the look I wanted for my notecards. There are oodles of design choices to pick from in the Brushstroke App! I use AVERY products, which offers a bazoodle load of designs and sizes, including posters, business cards and any type of notecard! Follow the easy instructions and feed the card stock of choice into the printer and Whalla, a notecard, postcard, whatever card you want! You can use their graphics and add text or download your own pictures from your files, adding text or not. Then fold, write and mail! Done!

I hate this!!!  It is a piece of “artwork” that sits in the front of our small town post office. To me this is what gives “ART” a bad name. To most people observing it, it looks like junk taken from a junk yard and welded together. It was given to our fine village as a gift. Hmmmm…….. beware of free gifts I say. Of course we had to build a base for it to sit on and have a big ceremony to acknowledge such a fine gift. Spare me. Well I guess the good thing is we didn’t have to worry about it being an eyesore when it finally rusted, because it came to us rust and all. There is a program on Acorn TV (a channel of British TV which I love to watch) that is called “How To Read a Painting.”  Maybe there will be something on there about “How to Like a Piece of Rusted Junk”! Stay tuned!

I have shown the photo painted in the Watercolor App and the Brushstroke App too. I Loved the sky and tree branches in the Waterlogue App! But, Waterlogue couldn’t help this ugly art in the garden either! Blob that it is!  Brushstroke tried to make the most of it! As we all shall have to!

The Cheshire Cat Sits in My Tree!

It poured here this week on Wednesday and I mean poured! So I went to the window to take a picture of my Woodland Garden and the big fat drops of water on the tree limbs. Much to my surprise when I focused in on the drops and processed the picture for the blog, a Cheshire cat with a very big smile appeared in the tree! He is to the left, sitting on the limb!  Can you see his big smile? AWESOME! Just another fun IPhone IPhriday week!

Winter is making a presence, and the leaves are hanging on. We don’t do winter here in the South. This week we had snow and worse, ICE. The day after the storm it was back up to the 50’s and should be back into the 60’s by the weekend. This is my idea of winter!

The extra photos are painted in the IPhone Apps, Waterlogue and Brushstroke.

Out and about this week I took a photo of the Scaly Bark Birch Tree or the Betula Nigra River Birch. It is my favorite tree! It’s not too scaly in winter, but I will update it as the weather warms up! It peels like paper and looks so cool! Look HERE to see other trees that have lovely bark to enhance your garden! I used the IPhone Apps, Waterlogue and Brushstroke, to add the other two images! They would make lovely notecards, don’t you think? Enjoy the IPhriday Photo Challenge!
