Green grass? Check.
Green leaves? Check.
Warmer longer days? Check.
Kite flying? Check.
Yep, my checklist shows it is spring.
Back to long days spent outside in the shade of our giant oak tree. Picnics in the backyard, catfish fishing in the pond, playing in the sandbox with construction vehicles, chasing dragonflies.
Ahhhh, life is good for this mom during warmer weather... I LOVE my job. :-)
Oh, there is one fly in the honey. Warmer weather means active snakes. And snakes love eggs. And that means giant 6 foot rat snakes in my chicken coop, sometimes hanging from the top rafters... Oh boy. Goes to show no job is perfect. ;-)
Photo edited in LightRoom. I used the CoffeeShop Web Rounded Corners action in Photoshop CS4 to round the edges and make this image web-ready. :-)
Oh, check out these amazing free textures from Johnna Riddell! She is the one who wrote these two amazing actions: Johnna's TeaParty and Johnna's Memories of Sunshine. If you download the textures, please leave Johnna a glowing comment so she will make more! Ahhhh, I love free textures just as much as I love spring.
I am putting together a texture tutorial that you are going to love! I have noticed that softly-colored hazy textured images are all the rage, and I am going to show you how to get that exact same look. I will have a tuturial and a free action. I can't wait to post this one!
