Frosted Clematis Seed Heads


Frosted Clematis Seed Heads

A hard frost this morning which made some plants look pretty but devastated others, This clematis looked very attractive so thought I would have ago at editing in the new picnik site, some quite unusual effects which some members may like but others may not, its fun to play about with whatever your taste.

Thanks Amy I will have a look at Digmaster.
Thanks Gee, Sanbaz and Stickitoffee, I havent added anything to the seed heads they were exactly as you see them, the effects achieved by using Picnik were mainly soft focus in background;0)

I hope that the clematis have survived the severe winter that we have had. I've noticed quite a few plants in my pots have died off especially the flaxes. I shall wait to see if they emerge from the middle before tossing away. The clematis That flowers March APril time that I have is going brown and looks sick and I'm just hoping that the shoots will soon explode into growth.

Cracking pic Pp, it takes me all my time to understand 'straight' pics I'm such a technophobe, How did you find out about Picnik and how to do it? :-)

Hi Holly it does look rather sureal in the frost doesnt it!

Pleased you like it BA, its quite easy, I usually edit my pictures in Picasso and they have now added a link to Picnik so you just click on Picnik and follow instructions, If you havent got Picasso you can download it vis the web by putting in Picasso in search. I hope it doesnt sound to complicated.if you need any more help just come back to me and I will try my best!

Hi Lindak didnt see you there, the frost is never ending at the moment, but Ive checked the clematis and there are new littl buds peeping , so fingers crossed it does make it! I think I have lost two Flaxes too and my Phorminum doest look good either;0( roll on spring!
