Polar Vortex, Be Gone!

It was -19 degrees F this morning, -28 degrees C.
I drove past a sign in front of a florist shop that said, "Fight the Polar Vortex With Flowers."  These are from my garden last summer, enhanced with a new app called Waterlogue.  
This is the original photo.  I love watercolors and I thought it would be fun to turn some of my photos into that medium.
I hope you all feel warmer now. 

Thanks for reading my blog.  Your comments are warmly appreciated.  :-)


  1. Wow. That is cold. So much of the states is suffering because of the vortex.

  2. Still so cold there, we have an early spring here, six weeks early....

  3. Flowers are so beautiful but it is risky to plant them in my country. Let's wait 2- 3 weeks.

  4. I love what the app did to your flowers. It does look like a watercolor painting!

  5. And down here it is cooling off slowly - actually it was cool enough last night to add a light blanket to the bed lol Might soon be time to reassess the bedding and change for season ahead.
    That's a nice combination of colours you have there - I see a day lily but am not sure about the little lavender coloured flowers.
    Thanks for your comment on my last post - hopefully with time I will be back to my ususal cheerful self. Not forgetting but a lilttle more understanding

    1. Glad it's cooling off for you. The purple flower is bee balm, or monarda. It comes in red, pink and purple and is a hardy perrenial as well as a medicinal herb.

  6. And I thought 29 was cold! The flowers are beautiful!

  7. My sentiments exactly! That is a cool app to make your photo look like a water color:)

  8. I just bought that app too after seeing it on Vagabonde's blog. It sure is a LOT of fun. I love what you did with it. People didn't turn out well though.

  9. OMG how do you stand those temperatures!! I bought the app today must try it soon.

  10. We've actually been getting some temps above freezing here in the mountains of CO. Hope you warm up soon. I like playing with Waterlogue, too.
