Almost WW #31 - Hydrangea Collage Found

(I think this is my 31st)

Lost & Found
(If you're lost, check Flower Frustrations to catch up)

After spending way too much time looking for this last night and this morning, I decided to let the computer FIND it for me ... but after multiple ADVANCED searches, nothing showed up on ANY of my external hard drives and/or USB flash drives ... so I concluded that somehow it didn't get saved after all and set out to recreate the collage. Low & behold (after loading PSE 6) when I went to OPEN FILES ... there it was ... thus here it is. Let your eyes start top left and move clockwise around to follow the sequence. If I had it do over again ...(given what I've learned in the last day or two), I'd make changes ... but since I'm getting my hair cut in a little while, I need to take Molly for her walk and get myself ready. I'll be back later to visit other Wordless Wednesday posts as time permits.

I’m happy to have located the elusive collage and appreciate everyone for you supportive responses. At this point, my Hydrangea only stands about 18 inches tall … but hopefully by this time next year it will actually become a BUSH? It’s certainly healthy and filled with bigger blossoms than last year already. The variation in colors surprises me, especially since I remember my dad burying nails in the soil to add color … but this plant seems to ‘enjoy’ the soil here in my yard ‘as is’ … because I’ve not added ‘food’ for quite some time.
Today was the 10th and final session of the Beginning Photoshop Class. The Intermediate Course begins next wee and runs for 10 additional Tuesday/Thursday sessions. I’ve determined I need a new computer with more RAM if I’m going to do much more with Photoshop. This old laptop has just 512 mgs and is slower than molasses … especially if I have multiple programs open. I’m looking at one with 4 gigs of RAM and that should be enough to do just about anything … for a while at least. I hope you’re all having a wonderful week.
Hugs and blessings,

Tamy, Sandy, and Tina – Thanks for visiting. I’m truly grateful the collage ‘surfaced’ so I could share and appreciate your compliments. Sorry to be so slow in responding. Hopefully my new computer (once it arrives) will help me keep up better. Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and blessings,
