A shot of some of the first blooms in my yard, hyacinth. If it weren’t for spending my time out in search of wildflowers I believe my yard would be full of the garden variety of blooming flora.

This shot was made with my P80 after a return form walking Lexi this morning. I worked it up applying a Topaz Adjust layer using a smooth and flat preset. I liked the smooth soft look to it.

I am going to attempt to start a wildflower bed again this year. The attempt was made last year, everything planted from seed but with some big rains all got washed away. As with all good things try and try again until success is the only option.
