Always learning something NEW!

When I saw Jen’s post at Muddy Boot Dreams, I read her comment as well! And learned something new! 


I use Windows Live Writer for all of my posts but I have never put Reflections (under Borders) on my photos! WOW! Photos from the Asheville Arboretum!  How pretty is THIS!


I wanted to show my pretty hydrangeas on my coffee table.


They are just about finished and their blooms are starting to dry out but hubby cut some and I am going to enjoy them!


I put them in a piece of pottery that we bought at Sea Grove!


And a few of the small blooms in this vase…


I have mentioned artists that inspire me and I hope everyone will visit Diane at Diane Knott's Musings to enter their giveaway and visit their new shop Cottage by the Pond !

Here’s what hubby is doing this afternoon…..


standing on the balcony watching this airplane!


Have a wonderful day!

My hubby would be doing the same thing - watching that airplane. Men do that, don't they?

It's so neat that you are learning the Windows Live Writer tricks. I like the large pictures but have to admit that I don't have the patience to sit and figure it all out. Oh well, I'll be old school. :)

Your hydrangeas are beautiful!

I used Windows Live Writer once and remember liking it, but don't know why I stopped. That is a very pretty effect for your photos. There's so much to learn in Blogdom!

How beautiful! Isn't God's creation just amazing?! Thank you for sharing!

btw, I'm having a giveaway on my blog!

You did a great job, I love the way the colors are muted in the reflection. WLW is a fun program.

Your hydrangeas that you cut are so crisp, and full still. I am afraid that ours are a little shriveled from not enough water.

Your hydrangeas are gorgeous!

I love the way your photos came out with the reflection. Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers, and they look stunning on your table. I will follow those links.

Beautiful blooms! Most of mine have dried up from all this heat we're having. The reflections thing is neat. I'll have to give it a try.


bj said...

OMGoodness, these flowers are so so pretty. I love your photos, too.
I've never used the Live Writer...someday I will try to figure it out. :)

Those hydrangeas are beautiful. Hydrangeas are going to play a big part of Sara's upcoming wedding. We're using them in all her centerpieces. : )
Have a good weekend.
