Glimpses of Spring


Pulling out some old photos which remind me of Spring.
This was my sunroom in The Borrowed House.
Thanks to Pat, for recommending Picmonkey, and to Cindy for recommending Ipiccy. Both are easy and fun editing programs to play around in.


Ok, I still like large photos though.
Both of these editing programs seem a little more user friendly than Picasa, at least to me.
Not sure if I'll continue to watermark. This was just a play session. As my friend Dayle said, watermarking really doesn't prevent piracy. But it is a nice credit especially if you use Pinterest.
My city of romance, Savannah. 
I would love to sit and listen to harp music while enjoying the cool breezes of spring!  

Waiting on these to bloom in my backyard.
 
It's time for the azaleas to start blooming too. Imagine my horror when I walked outside a few days ago and saw the neighbor had chopped down the entire row of azalea bushes between our yards. He said he was tired of trimming them. boo hoo!




Closing the chapter on the tech stuff. Thanks for letting me rant the last couple of posts. Time to move on because this blog is devoted to pretty!
Still time to sign up for the giveaway- here!

Your pictures are beautiful! I'm so looking forward to the flowers beginning to bloom around here. Our hyacinths just started poking up out of the ground. Glad to hear you're finding the new photo-editing sites more user friendly.

Pretty Pictures! What a shame your neighbour cut down the azaleas! He could have at least asked if you wanted to keep them pruned. lol I'm still using Picasa. I'm too afraid to try something else and like it. Blessings, Pamela

What pretty pictures. I am off to check out the two photo editing programs you mentioned!

And lots of pretty things in these pictures! I can't believe your neighbor cut down the azaleas...they are beautiful! :)

XO,

Pretty pictures! I can't believe your neighbor cut down his azaleas. When I was a kid, my father & brother cut down all my mother's peonies. Some 30 years later, she still regrets letting them do it!

Ahhhhh, spring! Definitely was here to visit us today. Temps were like a cool day in summer. Good enough for me in March.

I like the watermarking...although I don't think I have the patience. I'd have to try out the editing program you mentioned!

Cindy said...

Your photos look great, dear friend, is that your armoire in the first photo? It's gorgeous! And very large, I love it!!!
I looked at Picmonkey, but I couldn't see as many edits there as on ipiccy, maybe I just didn't see them.
So sad about the Azaleas, I love them! They don't grow real well here, but they grow in abundance where I lived in BC.
Have a lovely day,
Love and kugs, Cindy

Please don't stop watermarking your photos, sometimes it's the only way to source back to you and original post.

I'm stunned at the chopping the bushes story. How dreadful! Your pictures are beautiful. I wouldn't change a thing if I were you. Your blog is as pretty as ever. :o)

First visit. Beautiful post.
I too can't wait for Spring. Drop over sometime. yvonne

love that wedding pic! (and all of them, really.) I wold think unless you splash your name across the middle of the photo, your pic could be stolen and your name cropped off. I'm also thinking through why it would bother me if someone lifted a photo of mine, I would most likely never know ...

With the warm weather we have had this week, it has taken everything I have to get anything inside accomplished! I keep heading out to the flower and herb beds cleaning and playing in the soil! Great images!

Ahhh such pretty pictures Tammy. I am loving picmonkey too!

Calypso In The Country said...

Love the photos. I haven't figured out how to watermark mine yet. I agree it is really helpful for Pinterest though...

I am so ready for spring. I haven't heard of those editing programs before. Beautiful photos and thanks for the inspiration.

Have a blessed day.
