The flower images used here started out as the following slightly out-of-focus photo of the blooms on another weed on my property . . . I'm not sure if it is tie vine . . . or bindweed . . . or wild morning glory . . . or what! . . . anyway . . .
I opened the above image in IrfanView . . . and applied the oil painting effect . . . and then the rock effect . . . and that yielded the following image . . .
The next one is cropped from the above image . . .
as is this one . . .
The verse on the collage . . . which was created in Picasa . . . is from a little book of poetry called Texas Evening . . . by Nancy Richey Ranson . . . who was Poet Laureate of Texas from 1941 'til 1943 . . .
