Flowers on Saturday

My entry......
a couple more for good measure...lol

I love taking pictures!!  I love how the top photo turned out.  I used it for my screen saver last summer.  The petals look so iridescent. I don't use any photo editing software.  I usually just download and go.  If I want to participate in a few more "photography" parties I am going to have to find some type of program to use.  Any recommendations?  "free" is always a plus!!

  1. Those purple flowers are Clematis, aren't they? Beautiful! I can't wait til mine are that plentiful!

    When I have to edit pics I use GIMP. It's free, easy to use, and you can download it here:

    Have a great weekend!

    1. Yes Della they are Clematis. And this plant isn't mine either, I was dog sitting for a guy at work and his yard was amazing. I took lots of pictures. Thank for the software!!

  5. This looks to be a Jackmanii clematis. I have a couple and they are lovely.

    I use pixlr.com which is a free online photo editor.

    Thanks so much for sharing at Your Sunday Best this week, Roxanne. :)

  6. Your first shot is gorgeous. I'm trying out a few new photo editors since my go-to program is being pulled by google. I've fooled around a bit with pixlr.com (both the simple and more complex versions) & picmonkey.com. So far I'm not finding exactly what works best for me so I'm still looking.

  9. Calling by from My Favourite Photo Monday as another participant, what a beautiful clematis. Like Cheryl I have been using Picnik and have not found anything to match it yet, I like to make collages which you may notice if you call by News From Italy. :)

  17. Hi Roxanne, I love the honesty in your profile. Taking the first step into blogging is a little scary like, "What am I Doing Here". It looks like we both started blogging about the same time. I have truly been enjoying the journey and meeting so many interesting people along the way. I really like your blog, it has already given me an intriguing interest to see your lovely dream island. Speaking of dreams . . . you know that every wonderful thing that never happens in our life, starts first with a dream. One of my favorite quotes is, "Dream Big & Work Hard". That's how you make your dreams come true. I want to invite you over to my blog . . . come visit and join my journey, too. Your newest follower, Connie :)

  18. Hi Roxanne!

    That clematis is such a beautiful color! If that looks so good and you haven't enhanced it then you are already a great photographer!

    Thanks for sharing at my party this week!

  20. Love clematis - never grew it successfully but going to give it another go this year!!

    I am a point and shoot gal but PicMonkey is a great photo editing site - it's free too!

    1. This clematis isn't mine - but my dad gave me a small vine last year that looks like it is going to be very pretty (although still small) this year. Thanks for the software advice.
