Abstract Calla Lily
Free and Easy eDition
(Textures by Kim Klassen)
We were given free rein to do as we pleased this week regarding images and texture/s. So I chose to take an image of a calla lily plant that sits on my desk-but that I also almost nearly killed the other day. Oomph! You need to water these things every once in awhile, so it seems, as they are not like the cactus plants I have in sitting on my kitchen countertop-or those diva like orchids I tried to grow once. Ugh! Nope. . . My new little plant was fine for days, and then. . . suddenly, one day. . . not so much. Droopy leaves, wilted flowers, I was so worried. I gave it plenty of sun, at least I remembered to do that part. (Maybe that's what the deal was, too much sun, not enough to drink?) My little plant was parched, seriously parched. I didn't water it because I was treating it like an orchid-which as anyone who has ever owned one of those uppity-high maintenance plants knows - you are not supposed to water them much-if at all. You feed them an ice cube (that's right, one ice cube) every ten days or so-and then you have to feed them special orchid plant food-and talk nicely to them. . . But then no matter what, they still end up dying on you. Doesn't seem right to me, but oh well. . . I'm just thankful my little calla lily survived my stupidity test and is now thriving wonderfully again on my desk. Phew! ;)
Thanks, as always, going out to the lovely artist, Kim Klassen. Her textures make me want to smile out loud every time I use one of them on an image of mine. You rock, Kim!
Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
