Here in Colorado, we are in the really hot part of summer (as I hear much of the country is), so I don't get out as much as I would like to photograph flowers. But yesterday, the kids and I, along with my sister in law and her son headed out to the Botanic Gardens during the morning. It was pretty busy since it was Sunday and there were several beautiful weddings going on! I did manage though to get a few flower photographs before it got too hot for us to be out.
I am still amazed that there are so many beautiful flowers in the heat of the summer. I am also very glad to see so many that love this heat so I can photograph them!
I am also starting to get back into textures. I had taken a break from adding textures to my photographs, but began to miss them! lol As you can see, some of these prints in this posting have the texture added to them.
Aside from flower, I have been wanting to take advantage of all the fresh fruit. My family and I love cherries. They do not last long around here. I think these Rainier cherries are so pretty w/ all the different colors on them. Needless to say, they didn't last much longer after this photograph!
Just a side note....Today is the last day for my Buy 1 print, Get 1 Free Sale. The details are in my shop annoucement! :)

Wow, I have really fallen off the ball on this one! But, I have told myself that I will get back on top it and stay on top of it! :)
So, what have I been up to for the past 6 months? I have been pretty busy here at home with my kids and family. My daughter turned 5 and lost her first tooth and my son turned 3! They are on summer vacation right now that ends in a few short weeks! My son will be starting preschool and my daughter will be in Kindergarten.....where is time going??
Photography wise, I have had the opportunity to photograph flowers around town and I have tried to photograph other non-flower items such as fruit or my husbands guitar. LOL I have also come out with some new products like postcards (both 4x6 and 5x5 metallic), new magnets (2x2) and I am also working on 2011 Calendars. Two are listed in the shop and I have ideas for 3 more Calendar themes! I am also running a Buy One, Get One Free sale through Monday on all reg. priced prints up to 12x18....ACEOs are also BOGO FREE!
For the month of July, my work has been hanging in a local Coffee Pub called Rooster and Moon. Its in Downtown Denver and has been a wonderful experience putting my work in a local shop.
All in all, life has been good! :)
