Sometimes when I have some pretty flowers, I like to set up a vignette and photograph them to use on future cards. All the editing on these was done on Picasa.
A dear lady who is like a grandmother to my daughter (Allison's wedding reception was held in her backyard five years ago....wow, can't believe it has been five years!) moved away from Atlanta, but she told me to go pick roses and flowers from her yard. I photographed these peonies from her yard using some old china that I collect for this purpose.
Hopefully, this will give you some ideas!
"Lucy, you got some 'ploring to do!!!".....Love to hear about places you find!
Happy Mother's Day, yall!
