angel trumpet

i grabbed my camera to capture the golden glow of this
trumpet vine blooming on my back deck.... 
 the sun had just gone down for the day....
 but the rays still hit the clouds right above my house.
 you know, that fleeting time, in the early evening 
when there is a tint of yellow
 or is it pink? 
mother natures filters...

mother nature's filters
 combined with a few textures from
the ever generous
kim klassen

p.s.  thank you,
 sweet smilin amy
 for fixin my puter!
phew .
all was not lost....

The angel trumpet is pretty enough to almost appear not to be real. I bought one at a neighborhood sale for three dollars this year. It is small but I have large hopes for it. Thanks so much for your comment yesterday. xoxo, Olive

Your photographs of your trumpet flower look like something from a fairy tale! I think we can grow them up north and after seeing yours, I'd like to give them a try next year. Thanks for sharing!

Is that not the best time of day to photograph? Don't you photographers have a name for it?

Finally I am feeling better and getting around to the blogs. (Pinteresting on my iPhone!) Hope you are doing well! looks like you weren't feeling so good. Hope you're better and it's cooling off. Will the rain be hitting you from the hurricane?

Anyway, lovely photos as always Erin!!!

Ahhh... the Angel Trumpet, another painting waiting to happen. I love the way you talk about the light, it's so true, how it moves and changes, and is so amazing... you capture it with your magical touch, as usual...

Hi Erin,
Thank you so much for your kind words about my windows.. It was so sweet of you to visit.

When I finished painting the kitchen cabinets and doing the decorative work I thought it would be nice to also do the window.
So happy you liked it. So happy I am done!
