Fragrance (and Fiddling with FotoFlexer)

I walked into my house late this afternoon to the scent of hyacinths. I rarely buy flowers, but enjoy picking up potted bulbs at this time of the year.

I get the joy of the flowers and fragrance now,

and I can plant the bulbs, come fall, for more blooms in upcoming springs.
That is, if I remember to plant them!

Like so many others, I've been using Picnik for many of my blog photos. This evening, I experimented with Fotoflexer, another free photo editing tool. The results are in this post.

Take a sniff. Maybe you'll be able to smell the hyacinths. 

Please remember, you're invited to join in Sunlit Sunday this coming weekend!

Comments or questions? I'd love to hear from you.


  1. The polka dot bowl could not have been more perfect for the hyacinths. Lovely photos! xoxo Debbie

  2. Karen, I can almost smell the hyacinths. They are lovely.
    How did you like working in Fotoflexer? Is it easy to use. I need to find something since Picnik is going away and I want it to be easy.

  3. There are certain things I would love it if there was smellivision this is one of them.Lovely photos and the polka dot bowl is very pretty.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  4. I love the smell of hyacinths. I'll be away for work next week, and something I always do is buy fragrant flowers for the hotel room - I'm thinking it should be a hyacinth on Sunday night!

  5. I bought some pink hyacinth yesterday. Can't wait until the flowers open up!

  6. I am not yet over Picnik. I am going to use Befunky to edit, I think.

  7. Beautiful pictures! And snap! I've got a vase of cut hyacinths gracing our table in honour of my daughter's second birthday. The scent is divine but reminds me that Louis XIV had thousands planted in his Versailles flowerbeds and the scent was, according to the courtiers, unbearably powerful.

  8. Lovely flowers! I can almost smell them. Very nice mosaics.

  9. Gorgeous. I love hyacinths and I can almost smell that scent from the photos. I'll have to check that photo editing site out.


  10. Hi Karen
    I think I can smell your hyacinths through the screen of my computer - heavenly!
    The only reason I was using Picnik was to make collages as I find iPhoto on my computer is pretty good.
