Well, for those of us who have no flowers this time of year, I thought it might be fun to create cyber arrangements with long past blooming posies from our gardens. Here is one I made for the cafe, looking good with that limey wall?

Well I use psp and I cut out my own flowers from my garden photos and then paste them - long process, but fun to do.
If you have a photo program for editing give it a try. PSP is great for edging and cutting out my garden pics and then I just save them individually and add what is needed for the arrangement.

Oh Zany I really like that narly wood, something that would look great at our house.
I thought the same, the flowers stay wherever I place them, they never wilt and no maintenance at all! This is gonna be an interesting virtual flower thread.
Thanks for bringin over the duckie, I think he is the cutest!
Those pussy willows remind me that I used to have a black one and it thrived fine for a few years and then I went and messed with it to move it and never made it back from that. Will have to think about another some time.
Terri, feel free to bring in your posies, all are welcome!

So you are bucketing hotwater to a horse? E-eeks.. now I feel like a heathen! LOL I spent today under the house in the crawl turning off the outdoor spigot to the water to the animals cause I had a busted pipe. My parking lot is flooded from it and it turned to ice, so now I have a very unwanted skating ring! And I had to drag a huge pile of garden hoses waaay out to the shelter to fill the trough for my eleven hooved beasts and then drained those hoses, stuffed them back in the shed so they would not freeze and they are enjoying all the COLD water I could muster today! I will be danged to bucket 500 gallons!! LOL! My guys are outdoors but have a run in shelter so they are a tough lot. Join the sick of winter club.. I had my fill two days in.

Be midsummer before we fix that disaster.. ugh. So looks like every 3-4 days I will be repeating the hose dragging exersize much to my arthretic chagrin! OY!

I like the feather Zanymuse.

Blossombuddy: Our huge horse tank is frozen solid, even with a heater in it. The water line out to the barn burst somewhere under the driveway. Looks like a fountain bubbling up from under the gravel. Going to have to get a Ditch Witch here this summer. Oh joy!
Had to take over the bucket brigade this morning, DH is walking around like he's 100 yrs. old. One good thing, when the tank finally thaws it will be full to the brim. After that we'll have to start the hose dragging again. Do you think the beasts know how much we love them? I think our DD is coming out for the weekend. She can take over, after all it's her horse!

I think I'll just play on the computer again today and stay away from "father time" on the couch down stairs.

It's a machine that digs a narrow trench so you can bury a pipe without causing too much mess.

I did another one this morning. I used an old vase marked German with crossed swords. I can't read the makers mark though. I put daylilies, bluestem, Golden Alexanders, a coneflower and coreopsis.One thing fun about a cyber bouquet is all he flowers don't have to be in season to make an arrangement, unless you use silk flowers. That could get costly.

Pastime, your lucky you can get a ditch witch.. I am gonna have to dig mine down by hand. We are on sand. And it has been know to turn to qwick sand. Depending on the rainy season will too depend on how soon and top that we usually have a high water table.

My mistake was not dragging the hose and did a few buckets and the stopping and starting of the pump and the extreme 20 below weather did not allow it to drain properly.

On th egood side, our 500 gallon trough did defrost today and some snow melted.

Its about time!

Zanymuse: I drew them on a Mac using Adobe Illustrator, which is a vector program. I have about 100 so far. They are all prairie plants found in Illinois. This cyber arrangement thread gives me a chance to play with them again. Haven't drawn a new one in a while.

Blossombuddy: It's thawing here today too. My frozen car door finally opens again. It must be quite a site watching me climb over the center console in a Wrangler to get to the passenger side, especially with a big winter coat on. Glad that's over.

Pastime - got up to 65. Running around here without a coat... but you know how that goes, give it a few hours and that will change...sheesh, from 20 below to 65 above in 5-6 days.. now that is extreme! I hate Illinois weather in the winter! But thankfully spring is coming... yeah right like maybe in May!! LOL!

No pics today.. been filing seed.

I have Adobe Ilustrator 9.0 and 10.0 here somewhere but have never tried to draw anything with it. I may have to put the old gray matter to use and learn how to play with it... the illustrator not the gray matter ;~) But it will have to wait until life settles down a bit so I can concentrate.

Well, I can twist them, turn them, change the effects, crop, but still no cut and past...please tell me I do not have to go to the windows thingee... PhotoImpression is great, but well, hate to say it, I cannot do the cut and paste... I am at a loss on how to!

Well, back to the drawing board...maybe one day I wil figure that one out.

Cool petal tree terri!

I could tell you how to do it in psp blossom, perhaps you could google a tutorial on your program for cut and paste?
Here is a little snowglobe that may take us from winter into spring.

haighr, that is STUNNING.. I will take you up on some instruction..

That snow globe would make for a lovely Christmas/holiday/ New years card!

I am going to try to get on Windows Paint and see what my machine has there.. maybe I can have some fun with the PhotoImp and that one with Capture and cut and paste if that is where have to go...

I wil try that and let you know what I come up with!

I just learned how to do movies on this thing.. now would that not be cool to do wild videos of arrangements there! Well not today, but hold that thought!

Gotta run.. I have a shelter full of starving animals... catch you back here again!

photo impressions 6.5 [quote]When you’re ready to take your photo editing beyond the basics, a set of advanced tools gives you pixel-level control. The Heal and Clone tools make skin blemishes and distracting objects magically disappear. ,The Clipboard lets you copy and paste elements from one photo to another.[/quote]

What version do you have?

Moving things around and making cuts and copies on the other hand... still learning so I still have nothing to show.

It's been a year and a half since anyone has posted a virtual arrangement. Thought I'd bump it up with one I made a couple weeks ago. I'm not ready to clean up my real gardens yet. I used a photo of a my tall metal vase this time and grabbed flowers off other drawings. The arrangement is part of a larger drawing posted on a different site. Some of you may have seen it over there.

Blossom: Are those the big, juicy, green ones you find on tomato plants? Just looking at them gives me stress. Pretty cool what you did.

Haighr: Here is the bigger picture. It's been reduced quite a bit to fit on the screen.
