A Crown Fit For Violet

>> Monday, August 23, 2010

I have meant to make the girls a crown of flowers so many times I can't count but for whatever reason haven't this year. Our buds are all just about spent. It is hard to survive months of intense heat and they are slowly browning or losing petals. This week while weeding I managed to salvage a few and this was the result.

That black eye is still lingering. I thought about cloning it out but come on then it wouldn't be Violet right? For something new I tried shooting in our garage and am very happy with how this shot turned out.

There's a bouquet at The Paper Mama!

That is truly beautiful, just absolutely lovely.

I'm so sorry about that black eye. It's a gentle one, but still....

You are an awesome flower crown maker! That is a gorgeous shot - even with the remnants of the shiner.
