Just For Fun

I am going to be in the thick of things tomorrow in the garden .. so I won't have time to post then.
My roses finally arrived today (they were supposed to be here yesterday but I am fine with the fact they are here now!) .. So it will be me making a bee line to a garden center for more soil and mulch .. then straight into the back garden to plant these roses and peruse what other chores have to be done such as a major watering mission .. no rain and winds that are drying out the soil as I sit here and type !

So .. just for fun ?
I played with a few new options of Picasa and I thought I would post the results :  )

Now how easy is it to draw like a wanna' be artist ?

Ha your pictures, Joy! We can all be wannabe artists with these photos editors. Tomorrow, I'm going to have to get out there and water, too. I've been patiently waiting for the rain, but none has come. I must provide moisture for my garden babies that are growing like weeds but dying of thirst. What a weird year this has been. A dry winter and now a dry spring. Let's hope we don't have a dry, hot summer!
