  1. Beautiful! I didn't see yesterday's post -- I had a busy weekend.

  2. Hi Jan,
    Both collages are quite colorful, but I do like this one better. How did you get the background to be blue? I can't figure that out. I use Picassa, too.

  3. Jan, they both are very nice. I am envious that you can do that! Please tell me it took hours and hours! ;-)

  5. By the way, my cats don't eat or touch my houseplants, though I don't have a lot of them. I just did the GBBC, just in time! :)

  6. Beautiful collage Jan. It's so colorful, and really shows your beautiful blooms well.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Oh I like both! If I had to choose I'd say this one because I like the blue in between. How did you do it?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow--you did a grand job. It is beautiful and looks like you have some great plants. I love them all.

  9. Hi, Jan--I can't believe all your blooms, even if some are inside--they're gorgeous. Re the cat--do you grow catnip? We have tons of it around, and she leaves everything else alone. Beautiful photos, and I promise to visit more often.

  10. The collage is wonderful, Jan! You inspire me with your creativity with every visit! And just think, it's almost spring!

  11. I like this one too just because of the color variation. The one yesterday was beautiful too though and definitely had the wow factor with the color. I've done some collages with Adobe, but I need to play with Pacasa. So much to learn so little time.

  12. Oh, I like this one just fine too, but the other one was fabulous. You have a great sense of colour, Jan!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Jan-- Very pretty although I must say, try as I might, I couldn't read the fine print on your seed packet display. :-) I'm curious about what you bought the other day.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Jan, both are beautiful! Such perfect blooms and color-eye candy to be sure. I love that you've got your seeds. I am getting so anxious to start mine.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Nice layout of blooms! I hope the neck and back are ready for the upcoming gardening season. I need to get on the treadmill to get in shape for hauling compost!

    ReplyDelete
  16. It definitely is, Jan! Every bloom is bright and cheerful! Wonderful collage.

  17. I like them both... but this is a bit easyer to look at.

  18. Yes I think so, it is gorgeous Jan/ Tyra

  19. I agree, both are very colorful & beautiful!

  20. Hi Jan~
    So pretty! I love all the pink and blue blossoms. What a cool collage!

    Happy day~

  21. Your photos are great. I gave up houseplants years ago. If the cats didn't eat them they would knock over and break the pots leaving a huge pile of dirt and dying plant material.

  22. Hi Jan, I looked at the first post too, so many colors, so fun to see them all together. You did a great job. I am a great primrose fan too, they really perk us up when it gets cold after being warm, which happens every spring.

  23. They are both gorgeous, full of lovely spring bloom colors! I think I will try putting my tiny little potted roses into the garden over the summer. I'm thinking they'd look good at the feet of the big guy roses.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, you really went all out on the house plants. I have always been bad at the keeping plants alive inside thing. We just don't have enough light for them...Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Like them both ways. I am still in love with the blue one.Wish I had them all. My primrose seeds have sprouted though so I am crossing fingers that they survive.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Quite a nice selection you have there!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a colorful collage. You have tons blooming right now, lucky girl. I'm catching up on all the blogs and haven't been able to comment much. How did your bird count go?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well Little Missy, you did buy some indoor color that's for sure. So beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wonderful Jan - so warm and colorful

  30. I'm with you, just couldn't stand all the drab greys and browns and dull greens anymore. Funny that we both broke at the same time and ended up with shrieking hot colors of primroses! They are a real jolt to the eye on a winter day (in a good way, of course)!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi there Jan, very nice and what a lovely selection of colours! Perhaps I like the bigger version better but they are both great. You know I'm a fan of montages :-D

    ReplyDelete
  32. I do have a few plants with blossoms, but if I had more room, I would do the same thing. Just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Jan,
    Do you have all this color going on now? Wow! What a cheerful feast for the eyes!--Randy

  34. The rules were the first 3 to sign up got the PIF Gifts. Thanks for the offer anyway....I'll have to be a little faster to sign up next time.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Jan, Your garden of delights poster is just that a delight! I liked the first one, too! Have a delicious day.

  36. I actually like the first one better. It looks like the exuburance of spring. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lovely and colorful, Jan, makes the soul sing, doesn't it? If I had posted, you would see many of the same cheery plants ... love the primrose and cyclamen, which I always have this time of year.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes, Jan, Serviceberries really taste like blueberries. I don't know if they are high in antioxidants or not. I would think so, since most plants that are high have that deep blue/purple color.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow, very nice! love the primroses

  40. Jan,
    Your blooms are beautiful! I just love all of the color. I hope you enjoy sowing your seeds. :) Happy Bloom Day!!

  41. Hi Jan! I have tried for a couple of days now to become a follower on your blog, I have you faved in Blotanical, but your blog wouldn't let me.... until this evening. I enjoy your beautiful pics. You may have to do a tutorial on how on earth you made such a nice collage. I am really feeling the winter blues this season. Normally I love winter but I am ready for spring. Your colorful images made me happy and lifted my snowbound spirits. Thank you-
    Heather

  42. Well, how many did you REALLY get? The first one gets across the message of wild abandon. The second one is a nice collage.

    (I'll take the message ;->)

  43. Hi Jan,
    Glad I found you and all I can say is yippee!! Your photos are amazing...wish I was half as good...would love to learn the collage thing..so cool! Thanks so much for visiting and taking the time to comment on my blog. I will Fav you if that's all right.

  44. A lovely collage Jan and some most pretty
    flowers too :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Jan, this looks great! Making me realize not only do I need to get on picassa, but still haven't gotten my act together and done a post for GBBD.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love them both, Jan. What an amazing collage!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ohhhh... Jan, with those beauties I would be singing "thanks for today" too ;)
    Absolutely stunning! Each and every one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a wonderful collection of color! You're certainly enjoying this until Spring actually gets here... right?? ;-) Happy Day! Sorry I'm slow about getting over here!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yes, I think it IS better...easier on the eyes, and beautiful collage of color!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Seeing all these beauties indoors would certainly cheer me up, too! I'm not an indoor plant person anymore, just because I don't have a spot with good lighting for them. But these dreary February days are making me long for some colorful blooms inside.

    I'm impressed by the collage--I haven't tried anything like this yet.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Beautiful flowers, Jan! I don't have a cat, but I cat sit regularly, and it turns out that my house guest loves the ONE house plant that I have had in the house for the last few years-my orchid. It's been chugging along fine, but now it seems like it might be dying. I hope it's not from the cat bites. :(

    I just saw your Certified Wildlife Habitat button-how cool!

  52. Beautiful collage!

  53. What a cool collage of plants and flowers. I like your use of color-it is so cheery.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi Jan,

    How did you do it with such beautiful photos and making it a collage?

    You made my 2 day.

    Came across your blog at Kee Wee's blog and simply love it. I like birds too.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Jan,

    In response to your 105 mm lens you will love it! I had a 100mm macro lens and loved it until I got my 180mm macro lens though. The 180 is heavy and needs more light, but it clears out the clutter in the backgound and does want I want. I'm a big guy so carrying the extra weight of the 180mm does not bother me, I've not met any women shooting macro that liked its weight.

    Oh and Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Fantastic, how did you make this photo gallery?

  57. Jan, I like both your collages. Just wonderful colours! But this one is a bit easier to the eye.

    I really love the blue one - is it a primula?

    Take care!

  58. Valentines day, do you already have tulips blossom at you place???

    Then I read that you had to buy indoor plant to get some color - I do not get that.

    Yes it is a pity that some people just through glas all over and somebody els have to pick them up or even worse cut them-self.

    This weekend that past I was at "Lindalund" and we played with clay- you can see it on both her and mine blog.

    Love Maria Berg, MB
