A Delectable Form Of Defeat ....

This is the wisteria-covered abandoned house that initially caught my eye .... the abandoned truck was in the back yard ....

"To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat."

It's stunning how you've made what was once a photo into a beautiful painting on canvass. Again, your creativity is amazing.

Beautiful! I am going to have to gt me some of these photo effects and play with them.

I can't even begin to describe how these two photos effect me. Beautiful poetry doesn't even begin to pay reverence to these shots. The flow of flowers spreading carelessly over such a gorgeous old house. So storybook and charming. The setting that you captured it in, the grass and trees that surround it. The angle that you took this. Everything is stunning. I would hang this in my house. My personal favorite, Frances. :)

I'm so glad you posted the other picture. I've got to tell you I would not have guessed they were of the same place! You've made each so unique and distinctive it's amazing. Would love to see your works floating on a gallery wall for all to savour. And thank you for your caring words and encouragements, His hand in our lives makes everything flourish :-)

Oh Frances, how gorgeous. I would have been so excited to have found this old house with the wisteria growing all over it.
