Unfortunately, the forsythia bush in front of the entrance to our town home is not fairing as well as my gal Heathers:(
However, the tree growing on our patio (which sprouts these lovely white flowers) is plugging away despite the roller coaster Chicago weather. Smokey really doesn't care that you know this...don't take it personally, he's a big 'ole crabcake;P
Now for my photography question...How does the Doocester get that spotlight look with the fade to black in the corners? Is that done with an actual spotlight, is it a setting on the camera, or is it a nifty Photoshop trick that I have yet to learn?
