LikeLike Reply Good Morning Tex! I love Peony buds almost more than the flower. They just seem to have such stand up look at me personalities! Then they bloom and the flowers droop on down. But the scent makes up for that! Thanks for stopping by. I am still chuckling and impressed over your shots of Mr. Red Bird splish, splashin’ and takin’ a bath. What a wonderful series of shots! LikeLike Reply Beautiful Pix, Peony Buds? Love the texured look. From rainy Maine, Julie. LikeLike Reply Good Morning Julie! Brrrrr it is chilly here. I am hoping you are enjoying the rain in Maine? We need rain here! Yep, they are Peony buds and you know I love those little buds more than the flowers they become. Ants and all! But I do love to sniff me a good Peony flower-delicious : ) Give Winslow a little hug for me. LikeLike Reply That’s lovely Pix LikeLike Reply Thank you Christina! You have been on my mind. I hope you are doing all right. I believe I liked the original un-fidgeted with photo better. Oh well, live and learn. Maybe texture stuff is not for me. I have always liked photos right out of the camera with just a tiny tweak. Thanks for stopping by, I always love to see you! LikeLike Reply Your buds are full of possibility–perhaps the state fair? or? Suffice it to say they are georgous!!! Good job….By the way I think you mastered your camera on this shot. Cathy @ ragg2baggz LikeLike Reply Goodness thank you so much for the kind words! My camera is still the boss of me and WordPress too. I am just trying to figure it all out 🙂 A visit to your blog is on my agenda today. LikeLike Reply That is a really beautiful photo, Pix. Looks like a painting! Have a nice weekend!

Our weekend is going to be CH on the lawn tractor sucking up 354785045 gazillion leaves with the super duper leaf sucker! Fascinating to watch but dirty and dusty. Hope you have a fun weekend and could you give Stormy Cat a scritch for me? LikeLike Reply Love the added texture!!! LikeLike Reply Good Morning Carol and what a brisk chilly MissouREE morning we have! I had fun playing with the texture but I think I like the plain old un-messed with shot better.

LikeLike Reply Thank you very much for your visit to my blog. And thank you also for the good words about the texture. I am a huge fan of Kim Klassen because she is the only person that could get PS and textures straightened out in my brain. I believe I like the shot SOOC much better than when I fussed with the textures. I am learning something new every day! I will be paying you a visit at your blog 🙂 I am eager to see your work, always an opportunity to learn. LikeLike Reply That is Gorgeous! Really.

So, I went to Support and educated myself. I am sending you a big Thank YOU for the pingback. You got me going on something new, you are going to help me learn this WordPress blog thing for sure. Later I will have to read and learn how to DO a pingback. I am still not sure how this is all going to work after I hit “Approve and Reply”. I miss my cc and I don’t think you will see this reply unless you come to Under the Oaks! Here I go, hitting the button! LikeLike Reply I’m sorry about throwing you a curveball, but you hit a home run! You’re doing great Pix! Take care. -Theresa LikeLike Reply 🙂 I have read about them Theresa again and again. I think I understand. Definitely understand the concept where you link to my blog from yours as a pingback. But I have not tried to link to someone else’s blog from mine as a pingback. That gives me pause for thought. LikeLike Reply beautiful peony buds. LikeLike Reply Thank you so much for the kind comment!

LikeLike Reply You captured the peony buds perfectly! I don’t know very much about textures, but I think it adds a bit of nostalgia. Nostalgia combined with the possibility of gorgeous peony blooms makes for a very enchanting photo. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Thank you! I think I just like playing with the pictures. As I mentioned in a couple of comments prior, I think I liked the SOOC shot better. Textures leave me with a feeling of nostalgia too, that might be why I am a little taken with them-the textures. Enjoy your Monday Theresa! It is going to get chilly in old MissouREE. Brrrrrr. LikeLike Reply I read that you liked the SOOC shot better and I feel for you. Maybe, we BOTH try too hard sometimes. I do know that you’re a very good photographer. You go MissouREE girl! And, try to stay warm. -Theresa LikeLike Reply As much as I love peony buds, I love the texture work you have done in this picture. Just lovely. LikeLike Reply Good Evening! Thank you so much for the good words about this shot. I love peony buds too, more than the peony flower I think. I am still undecided about texture. I think I just enjoy playing with the picture.
