The Brits have an obsession with the weather I don’t think this is a surprise to anyone. Yesterday we had rain, sunshine and high humidity. Every time I tried to take a photo in the garden the wind got up, blew petals off the flowers and generally caused frustration….
I so love these little cornflowers and geraniums. I processed in Lightroom using my own presets, brushed colour back into the flowers then added Kim’s ‘true grit’. In Photoshop I used two of Kim’s textures and brushed off most of the texture from the flowers.

I think I may take some time off from blogging for a while, just popping back in now and then to add some of my favourite Summer photos… I have to create a Blurb book for a friends 60th and haven’t started it yet, I don’t want it to be a burden I savour choosing and designing my pages…

  1. So summery and beautiful, and the Brits are the only ones about the weather, I think it is here in America also. I love everything about this and it is so English to me. Hope you have a great time taking some time off we all need that from time to time.

  3. This is beautiful, Viv! Really a dynamite piece of work. {I'm with you on Blurb. I know I make it harder than it needs to be but I like to do my own layouts, too. And I'm about 4 books behind. Yikes!}

  5. Have fun making the photo book! I enjoy doing that so much. It always surprises me what kinds of images want to be put together. Can't wait to make the next one on my list. Love your sweet geraniums Viv.

  7. This is a delightful image, and I LOVE the quote. I've also meant to mention how much I like your header. It looks so summery, cooling and refreshing. Makes me wish we could sit down in the garden and enjoy a glass of…whatever…together.
