Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Saturday Snapshot

 Saturday Snapshot is hosted by At Home with Books. To participate in this meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
FINALLY! My first flower of the spring arrived! Three years ago I bought different colored pansies and planted them in pots and arranged them around my porches. A few must have escaped because since then I find pansies popping up in all kinds of places around my house. I rescue them and transplant them into a flower bed. These purple beauties keep coming back and this year they were the first to make an appearance at my house. Welcome - and it's about time!

And here's a few special effects, just because it's fun to play with!


  1. I love pansies! The special effects are so much fun!

  2. The original picture is amazing -- that color! -- and the edited shots are a lot of fun, too! Thanks for sharing :-)

    Here is my SATURDAY SNAPSHOT post.

  3. Pansies are such happy flowers to have in the garden. Lovely to see your spring shots as we head into autumn proper.

  4. Love the effects. Lovely pictures!

  5. I love pansies too. I particularly like purple and yellow flowers.

  6. I love pansies! They are one of the few flowers that I managed to keep alive consistently in my old flower beds. We had several different colors and they would cross pollinate and we ended up with some very pretty color combos.

  7. Beautiful! I love that 2nd special effect. Happy spring to you!
