The Process of Strength


Mary and Kym have both fallen head over hills for a smart phone app called Waterlogued. You can check their blogs if you want a peek at the effect. I've had smart phone envy for some time, but this app has taken that envy to an all time high.

Saturday I told Patty how much I loved the waterlogued pictures created via this app, so she turned one of my pictures into a watercolor. 


How fun is that? 

The red reminds me of the beautiful tulips I bought this weekend to brighten the gray and rainy days we've had this week. You get a real picture of tulips and not a Waterlogued one. (See above if you didn't catch why.)


This next picture may be difficult for many of you who are still dealing with ice, snow, and winter's cold. Winter has skipped right over us the last couple of months and spring is taking advantage. 


My neighbor's crocus is ready to bloom (her house faces the eastern sun) and in my little garden the leaves have push thier way through the earth. Since our place faces north, it will be awhile before they bloom, but spring is coming in fast. 

My there be sunshine in your world soon!


Wow! Ahead as always.

Beautiful colors! Always exciting to see the first signs of spring.

You have crocii before us. Amazing!!! The colors are so cheerful and hopeful. Thanks for sharing.

oh you are daring to post such lovely spring time photos! We are being spared a snow storm but there's still snow on the ground!! Love your water color photo :)

Thank goodness it is spring somewhere! I was starting to think it would never come anywhere!

I love your waterlogged picture!! Yes, it will be a good, long while before we see those lovely little flowers, but they are nice to see in your yard. :)

Thanks for the sunshine wish!

Still cold here but I did see daffodil shoots coming up by my foundation last week. Hooray!

Thanks for the flowers! I am sitting here watching it snow, so it brightened up my day a lot. What a wild winter!

I am absolutely GREEN with envy! Well at least that makes something green here. We still have snowbanks up to my shoulders.

those flowers are gorgeous! glad you're seeing spring ... I hope there's some left at home when I get back.

I have a tiny cluster of early yellow crocus, perhaps a couple of days behind those. But sadly, that's all. I need to plant more crocus and some snowdrops this year. I meant to do that last year and totally forgot.

So pretty to see on a day when we're dealing with more ice, snow, etc. Thanks for putting a 'spring' in our step!

Some of what I planted is coming up and there's quite a lot of other things coming up, too...planted by whoever lived in my place...will be interesting to see what everything turns out to be.

Oh, darn it, iPhone/iPad only, no plans for Android.

You have growing things. Wow. O.O

Trying not to feel iEnvy, and I usually don't, but this Waterlogue stuff is making it hard!!

So far I've resisted a smart phone since my "dumb" phone works perfectly fine for my needs, but I have also been quite envious of the ability to use Waterlogued. Your lovely, bright, real pictures of tulips and crocus have cheered up our snowy, frigid day and driven smart phone envy away. Thank you for sharing them along with sunshine wishes!

That is so cool!!

I, too, have been eyeing Waterlogued. Darn that Kay Gardner! And now, I can envy your sweet little flowers too. We usually have those in Feb, but it has been too stinking cold for too many days. Enjoy them for me!
