MMXII 33:: EDITING A PHOTO-A-DAY IN 2012

MMXII::33::AFTER 
I think I preferred my 'before' photo to tell you the truth. I was in a bit of a rush tonight with my edit as I worked all day (finishing up this week!). I stole these pansies from my neighbor, she always has a luscious garden, filled with flowers that spill into the alley that separates our concrete jungle from her rain forest. The worse part is not that I stole (which is bad, I know), but that when I walk by with my girls and see her lush garden each morning I am convinced that she must use dead bodies as fertilizer. I saw this forensics show once where these older ladies had a gorgeous rose garden, the best in the neighborhood and it was because they buried their victims in it. It just seems odd to me that the neighbor rarely tends to it, yet it flourishes way beyond everyone elses in the neighborhood. Yes, if you had the only lush garden in an otherwise barren neighborhood I would think you too had buried bodies in your begonias. Television, it poisons impressionable minds.

I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my 'after', you can view the 'before' here.

Bobbi, you aren't kidding, I think I am a forensic scientist with all I've watched, lol. K, they are called 'Pansy', it's not such a pretty name, Night & Day, much prettier but is that in Norwegian Night & Day or do you use the English? Thank you Caty. Jill that's how I feel bring on the white. I do like yellow but the way I shot it I don't think I did the yellow justice so thus the white.
