Texture Tuesday

What a morning! While snow fell like dancers in upturned tutus

the daffodils huddled against the house in a catatonic state.
  This year winter's mild manners have flora and fauna confused.   Outdoor daffodils with buds this early are taking a chance.  So I decided to do an experiment.  I cut three buds and brought them indoors.

Will they bloom?  Only time will tell.

I titled this last photo, Daffodil Hope because I hope these three buds do burst into trumpets of bright yellow.
Daffodil Hope is part of Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. The photo was edited in Elements 10 with various basic editing techniques and then layered with Kim's texture Felicity and a final layer of Rosy French, a texture from French Kiss.

  1. We finally got some snow here in NC, too. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am. Pretty photos...especially the last one. :)

  2. Such a beautiful post! I loved the first line, it described the snow so well, I could see it in my minds eye :)

  3. All these flowers around here are going to be in for a rude awakening I'm afraid.

  4. Michelle...we've had very little snow here in nw Ohio, but today it was beautiful while it lasted. Thanks for stopping by.

    geetlee...Thanks for your kind words.

    Kathy...You're so right. I doubt very much the daffodils bloom. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Beautiful photos! Oh, how I wish we could see one big snow before the Winter's over!

  6. Beautiful capture of falling snow. Just lovely! I hope the daffodils bloom for you!

  7. Beautiful images! I love the effect of the felicity texture on the daffodil image.

  8. Such a beautiful post, Teresa. Love all your images, so pretty! :)

  9. Oh my...it's the same story here...we've been incredibly mild for a few weeks...but it looks like we'll dip into freezing temps this weekend...poor, poor garden...it's so confused!

  10. I hope they will open. Beautiful processing.

  11. Ciao Teresa, thanks for your visit. Due to so much theft in the past, we no longer allow to pin our photos to pinterest or share them on FB etc, but thanks so very much for asking. :) Much appreciated.
    Did those beautiful daffodils open in the end? Hope so :)
    Happy Friday and weekend ahead.
