I'm putting desert shrubs in my front yard ... and vines on a trellis on one side of my carport. I have rock in the yard but wanted some color! Of course, I wanted to play with my camera and practice with Lightroom, too. This time I concentrated on working with "saturation" ... I removed all color except that which I wanted. You end up with a black and white photo - with color!
I started with some tools being used for the front yard project ... I kept only the red and yellow hues.
This is an oleander and I love the pink! The pink will be mixed with white oleanders along an ugly gray block wall. Won't be ugly for long! ☺
This desert plant is called a Fairy Duster. The shrub will become very bushy and filled with these fun red blossoms.
A row of Duranta forms a hedge along the front wall of my home. The small flowers are gorgeous purple.
These bell-shaped flowers are on a Bower Vine. I'm hoping they will attract hummingbirds like they're supposed to. The Bower Vines are mixed with Tacoma Vines (Solar Flare and Crimson Flare) on the trellis.
I picked the plants but someone else did all the work. Now let's see if I can keep it all alive and thriving! ☺
