First Blooms

Here's the first collage I made for my blog! How fun! I love learning new techniques in Adobe Photoshop. I used a glow border with the color I picked up from MY FIRST BLOOMS!! I have my first beautiful blueish-purple flowers finally blooming even with all of our California heat!! I also took some pictures of the dwarf boxwood.  I had reluctantly trimmed them back knowing that might spur on new growth and---yea---it worked!! See the lighter colored new branchings!! Woo Hoo!! Today I also picked up some seeds at the store and am excited to plant a few carnations, scallions, and lettuce! I wanted to try starting the seedlings indoors and see how well that goes.  Wish me luck...


  1. Oh what a wonderful blog you have, the project of your creative soul. Congratulations.

  2. Hi Melissa! Great collage. It is fun learning new ways to tweak photos. Over the weekend I thought I'd try a collage, but couldn't focus on the instructions. Good for you for figuring it out. Now I've got to see what's cooking on your recipe page.



Comments really let me know that I'm not just talking to myself here...Thank you!
