Indian summer

By woolybill1
In creating our back garden our intention was primarily to give us somewhere to sit in the sun. September 29th was only the second occasion we managed to do so this year........

This is an extra birthday card for Mrswoolybill on whom the sun always shines.

*Our extra-special week-end visitor was our good friend tony64 . We had a most enjoyable time despite the generally filthy weather and even managed to take a few pictures.

Has that one day of heat affected you that much. You'll be buying her coffee next.
Good intermingles colours and shades.

Good picture of the birthday girl Bill.
But I don't know what the Sergeant Major would make on the parade ground with a salute like that.
Confined to barracks for a few weekends and no visitors allowed I would imagine !!

Very nice effect in V1, and Moira's looking suitably young and vibrant in V2. Smile

v1 is a plethora of color, tones, & nice LB blur.

v2 is a 'Happy Birthday to a vibrant Moira, the Sun!'

Have a great Week~ Smile

So colourful and vibrant both are, Bill. Congratulations to the husband of the birthday girl (even if you are a Tauntons old boy!)

A lovely effect Bill, almost water colour, but with more depth. An unusual working of Moira too, but rather nice it has to be said.
And you've just answered the question that I asked on Moira's pic' so thanks for that.

I really like the treatment with both the shots Bill, only 2 days out in the garden, the weather upt North can't have been that bad Sad
Happy Birthday to your lovely wife too.
Danny is just being grumpy because he's jealous. Happy Birthday Moira, Bill I'm lost for word on V1.
