Ms.Althouse, Will you be stopping by Milwaukee for summerfest. If so, you should blog about it and do a segment on bloggingheads.TV

Dan from Madison said...

Not your first photo of the wonderful elephant ear hosta. I like them as well.

Irene Done said...

Blogged hostas from the blog hostess. Sweet!

George said...

Ooh, professor, you're such a tease.

Leaf us alone.

Heart shaped shields of bronzy green
In a shady place,
Hostas' emblamatic sheen
Fills the dimlit space.

Oops. Emblematic.

The return of vegetable porn!!!

Let it never be said that Althouse doesn't give the public what it wants...

I hate hosta. Sunny Gardens Rule.

I love Hosta. Cool damp green shady summer gardens forever!

mellow, that's my style
Surprise, surprise ! ! so you rub your eyes
never knew uds, so cool as ice?
hear the vibes man, they'll stupify
ducks - categorise us as hardcriers
that's a lie, we know why we're occupiers
no blurs, but obscure styles, these are higher
profiles are low - as soon as we go
as a breeze straight from a deeper shade of soul

Did someone teach Ann to dupe the layer, blur it and put it on overlay at 7% opacity? I see subtle signs of that cheapest of the cheap photoshop tricks in this.

Ann Althouse said...

djangone, my photo tweaking tricks are sooooo much cheaper than that. I don't have Photoshop, just iPhoto, and I mainly turn up the contrast and the sharpness a little, maybe lower the brightness, and maybe turn the saturation up or down or the hue or temperature one way or the other. And of course, I crop.

Mr. Simels has already said "adieu" to Althouse and yet he has commented, above.

It seems the vortex reaches all the way to France.

And gentlemen, when it comes to well-tended gardens, there ain't no bad.

Gertrude Jekyll said it first.

Just kidding.
