Before the Storm


Sunday, in between grocery shopping and laundry, I managed to enjoy some precious time with my camera on my front lawn, just before a rain storm hit.
I love how the diffused lighting managed to give these leaves a pinkish tint.
Rosemary.  The only herb I've managed to grow successfully.  Now just to figure out how to use it in cooking.
The remains of a hydrangea.  Love the shades of purples and greens.

  1. Ooooooohhh I love hydrangea - I wish I had a green thumb, thanks for sharing. I flew on over to see your blog, and the detail in your work is divine! Much patience needed to do that ;-) Not only are the colors great in the backgrounds but the faces have so much personality....stop on by if you get the chance http://www.designsbylindar.blotspot.com Fan page: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/Me-Myself-and-You/105043419547115

  3. Thanks Linda and Jo!
    I really don't have a green thumb at all. I do love taking photos though,
    especially of plants and flowers.

  8. I've done the rosemary with chicken, but never pasta. That's a good idea!
