soft spring

Spring came early and it's feeling more and more like summer every day. At least this is what I wish summer felt like, but I know the temperatures will be rising and rising in the coming months.


A few signs of spring...


Our tiny new satsuma trees are blooming and the bees have found them.

There are still lots of these little purple wildflowers in my yard.

The pansies, which are winter flowers around here, are still hanging on.

  2. Beautiful deb! These are gorgeous! In NY we had a few warm days and now we've been back to 50s most days, but colder in the mornings and at night. So even though spring came early, it didn't stick around. Brrr!

  5. Beautiful pictures! We accept all the signs of spring in the garden with a great welcome.
    I thought winter here in Norway has been long and cold.

  6. Deb,
    Gorgeous picture as always! I feel like I am the problem child in class always asking questions...but I have yet another! Is there anyway you could do a specific tutorial on how you change the intensities on the actions you apply? For example when you say Woodsy at 40%, how do you scale the edits back?

    1. You aren't a problem child lol! In photoshop or elements you can change the opacity of any layer that's applied to an image. There's a box right above the layers labeled 'opacity'. You can change it to anything between 1 and 100%. Let me know if that makes sense.

  13. I've never heard of a satsuma tree before, it's gorgeous.

    I like that you give editing details, I'm still trying to figure out how to use textures, your info helps.
