The convergence of the Plant and animal Kingdoms


(Created Cut and Paste Scene - Photo Art)


Everyday a new flower is born

Its destiny unknown

Some will grow and flourish

Some will wilt and die

A flower came into my life recently

A flower like no other

On that is beautiful in every way

Not perfect

But what flower is

My flower has a dark past

It has been hurt and stepped on

I fear it is wilting and dieing

The rain drops of life weigh heavy on its pedals

But I know my flower is strong

Much stronger then most know

Water and sun light is what it needs

Along with a helping hand it again breaths

In no time at all it will stand tall

The past being just that

It will live on and grow

Once again happy and healthy

My new flower will start a new of its own

And never again be a lone


All by me

Pluck this little flower and take it, delay not! I fear lest it

droop and drop into the dust.


I may not find a place in thy garland, but honour it with a touch of

pain from thy hand and pluck it. I fear lest the day end before I am

aware, and the time of offering go by.


Though its colour be not deep and its smell be faint, use this flower

in thy service and pluck it while there is time.


My youngest son and his sweet ways.

In the office, my boss next to me had red roses on her desk.


She started pulling off the flowers from the vase and laid them on the desk one by one. I wondered what she was doing.


Days went by and they became pretty nice dried flowers and

she wrapped in the brown paper.


Not a fancy office and there was no special spot. I removed mice, keyboards, or stuff like that out of the old white cabinet and laid the flowers.

"...Like the stars in the sky it's certain to be seen

That I would like to make you mine

We're heading down this road

And I don't know where it leads

But I would learn to love you in time

We'll wait for the sun

You're got flowers in your hands

You've picked petals one by one

Just to find out where you stand

You've been running from the smoke

But you've been caught up by a flame

Falling headfirst through the dark

And everything just seems to change...


You're trembling in my arms

Breathe the air within my lungs

Be the ground beneath my feet

So I can stand

The words we both speak will get lost within our cheeks

Like they were written in the sand.."

The rose speaks of love silently,

in a language known only to the heart.

My nephew found this flower when we went to the park yesterday he was really happy to find it :)

Well, my Photoshop CS5 arrived...... unfortunately, I think I may have to buy more RAM, or something like that. Not so much of a bargain, after all!

What could be better than giving a helping hand as this bee is doing for this flower.

I processed this photograph in Adobe Lightroom using the Whipped Cream Lightroom Preset / Queen Pack which is available to get from The Bell Sisters website.

This is a re-processed version of my first flower photo. In fact, it’s the first photo I ever took with a DSLR camera! You can see the original in the first comment. It was shot with a Canon Rebel T3 and the 18-55mm kit lens on September 3, 2012. So excited about my new camera, I remember buying some flowers from the local market, taking them home and sitting them in the shade under the oak tree in my backyard. Camera in hand, I began to take those first shots. I remember being frustrated because the lens wouldn’t let me get as close to the flowers as I wanted to and have everything be in focus, but I got as close as I could.


I came across this photo a few weeks ago and thought it would be fun to take another look and see what I could make of it. Although it’s still far from being one of my favorites, I think it turned out OK.


I’m glad I kept this. It’s a good reminder of how far I’ve come.


Anyone else still have their first photo? Even if you don’t have the first, seek out some of your earlier work. I’ll bet you’ll be surprised at your progress!!
