This is a Christmas Cactus. The three star title seemed to fit.



There are two more pictures, not for the challenge but I'll add the links in case anyone is interested.

So Barb won't ask what I'm on, again, I will just say, "nice." :-)

(Oh, that was just the pot calling the kettle black.--B.C.)


:-)I know it's always in fun. So are my replies. - BL (oops - maiden initials were "BS" and first marriage initials were "BM" - just typed BS and had to change it). :-)I am wound up - it's been a hectic and ludicrous week and work and nowa holiday weekend - woohoo! :-)

Ferny, you did a great job. If I were you (which of course I'm not), I'd increase both saturation and contrast a smidge to bring it out even more.

How's this? It's a lot truer to the lipstick red of the flowers. I edited the pictures with a coat over my head and the monitor. It is the only way to see the screen during the day and sometimes you miss a lot. Forget sometimes, all the time actually.

There is too much noise, when I upload to photobucket it appears to add noise, it's not there when I export the image.

Looks good ferny. I know what you mean about not being able to see the monitor during daylight. My neighbours must think someone's died because i have the curtains shut most of the time. :-)

And I almost forgot to ask. Monkey, have you been hitting the gin? Hard?

Nice gif! No, I really don't drink. I'm naturally weird and wired. Add to that a week to forget, and there you have it. :-)Sorry if I'm too much to handle this week. I'll try to tone it down a little.

You got it with that second try, Ferny. Excellent.

Nowhere else in the house are there shades, but I've got two windows here in my office and both sport room-darkening shades. You might give them a try. Best thing of all is that they're cheap, so when they get filthy, you throw them out and buy new ones. No, wait a minute. Don't throw them out. Wash them and use them as backdrops.
