It’s late as I write this and it’s been a long hard day. It was hectic at school due to Spring Portrait Day and the scheduling of classes for their pictures but I had the photographers out of there by 1 PM which is a record. And at lunchtime I laughed hard with my teacher friends. I love laughing at lunchtime.
I didn’t get home until late because of an errand I needed to run but the taxes are done and that makes me very happy. When I came home, I saw our neighbor, Saint John of Red Hill, down at the end of our driveway putting up our mailbox. I’d hired him to repair the post that had come down in the latest wreck to claim our mailbox. It happened last week at the intersection where my driveway lies. We call him Saint John because, well, he is. I work with his wife, Christine, at the school and she’s one of the few who make me laugh at lunch.
My husband told me he’d taken some photos on this beautiful day and asked if I wanted to look at them. “Maybe”, he said, “you’ll think some of them are good enough for your blog”.
And oh yes, I did. He took these snowdrop photos with the macro lens. I applied some different textures in Photoshop and when I was finished, I realized that everything was so green and that maybe it would make a good post for St. Patrick’s Day.
I want to sincerely welcome all the new faces I see here every day. I’m so glad you’ve stumbled upon my little place here.
This is a cool texture freebie available from Alphabet Soup Studios on flickr. I kinda like it.
And here’s that cool dog of ours. I see he’s carrying that green frisbee he likes so much.
