Bleeding Hearts and Safari

What a day! I celebrated our glorious 79 degrees and sunshine today by photographing these Bleeding Hearts. That, and a (ugh!) garage sale! And we Made Some Money! Want to know how much?



Wait for it! . . . Wait for it! . . . .



$83.75! Certainly, not really worth it, but it just felt so nice to sit outside anyway! And it was only a handful of boxes of stuff from a previous garage sale, and more things scoured from a recent garage clean-up. I like the decluttering process, and getting some things into the hands of someone else who can use them. (Like the almost new window, replaced after the Cedar Waxwings attack, which was suppose to go into another window. . . . but the installer measured wrong!!!!) So that's gone now, too.



And I just wanted to let you know about Safari, the browser. I recently switched to google chrome, which has some wonderful feature, but is NOT color managed! Firefox is, but not by default; you have to enter some code to make it color-managed. But if you download Safari as a browser, and check out your and others' photos (especially in the sRGB profile) you are GOING TO SEE COLOR! Give it a try, and look at these bleeding hearts under both conditions.

I've never had the patience for garage sales. On the other hand, I could look at these bleeding hearts for a long, long time and not be bored . . .

Congratulations on your clean garage! We need to do that, too!

Love the bleeding hearts - locally we call them Dutch Man's Breeches!

Well done with the garage sale.

I'm not sure how much better those gorgeous bleeding hearts can look because they look pretty spectacular to me on Chrome! Wow!

Congrats on your garage sale, mainly because you got to enjoy some sunshine!
