Good morning. After posting my blog yesterday, I took my crocheting and went to sit on the porch for a while. To my surprise, a large and beautiful visitor stopped by. It landed right on top of the hedge outside my porch. (This photo taken through screen)
This handsome bird was out looking for something tasty for lunch. He did not find it in my hedge so he flew to another and got very lucky.
My goodness, this is the first time I've had one of these beauties stop by for lunch. I usually have to go looking all over town to find them. Well, after this, it was a very quiet day. Some folks here at the resort were leaving to go home, and new folks were arriving. Later in the afternoon, DIL Janet arrived to spend this last week with Pogo and me.
Today is Mandarin Orange Monday. I think these trees covered with hanging moss are just beautiful. They are so elegant and graceful looking.
After playing around with the photo in Photoshop for a while, I ended up with this image. I did this a couple of days ago, and did not write down all the different layers, filters, gradients and blends that I used. Sorry. Sometimes I find that stopping to write things down slows down my thinking process and changes the outcome of the image I'm working on.
We were planning on going to the market this morning, but Housekeeping just called to say that they would be out this morning. I'm one of those folks who does not like strangers in my house when I am out. So we will be staying in until they've come and gone.
Janet wants to buy some yarn, and then we'll pick up a few groceries. We don't need much, so we won't be out too long. My ankles are swollen so it will be a couple more days before I go traipsing around town again.
Well, that's about all the news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
