Celebrating Flowers and Rebirth

Springtime brings a renewal and rebirth to all that had faded or died during the long, cold winter months.  We have some gorgeous creeping purple phlox that reappears each Spring, even though the plants look like they have withered up and died.

This photo was taken last April. 

I added Kim Klassen's look up and warm sun textures, increased the vibrancy, and softened the overall effect.
