Ballerina

Found Passion Flower Ballerina, right there on my fence

Beautiful flower. It does look like a Ballerina.
I like the way you photo shopped it.

Wonderful! Never thought about a passion flower as a ballerina but it's a lovely comparison. Have a great weekend!

Your header is smashing!!! I love the little twisted flower to the side. All beautiful. Yeah, Ginger was something else, wasn't she? I have always loved to watch people dance. You know my favorite TV show. I wish they would run it year round. It is about the only thing I watch regularly watch on TV except the news.
Love you Madsnapper....

very pretty!

Ginny said...

Yes, it is a ballerina! And apparently a double jointed one, too! I like the unfooled with picture the best.

Wow, your header looks like blown glass like Dale Chihuly would do.

Amazing passion flower, i can see the dancer all bent backwards with arms out with full tutu.

LC said...

Like all your versions of the passion flower. I know you photoshopped the spiral flower on the left of the header. How did you photoshop the one on the right. It looks like blown glass around the edges!

Ann said...

A beautiful ballerina it is too. What an awesome comparison. I really like the edited version of the picture too.
LOVE, love the quotes

That's wonderful Sandra. I just saw one a week or two ago. A friend brought me some of it's fruit to eat the next day--sorta like a pomegranate. I'd never seen one before then. They're amazing.

SquirrelQueen said...

And a beautiful ballerina she is, very graceful and delicate. I love the fluidity of your header shot.
