A Poem Finding Flowers ~ With A Festoon Of Flowers In Bloom

 

Finding Flowers

When I was a child ~ I mistakenly thought…

A weed was a flower ~ Until I was taught —

Then I grew up & found out wrong;

Some weeds are flowers ~

Grown wild and strong.

Bee In Bloom ~ A Dilettante’s Exhibition Of Vintage Photo – Shopping

A few years ago (more like ten years), when I was first exposed to the whole photo shop concept, I dabbled with a variety of photos, filters, and other tools in photo shop – to see what the images would look like.
