170/365: "I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers." ~ Claude Monet

170/365: "I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers." ~ Claude Monet
I have two areas in our front yard where I've planted wildflower seeds, but since we live in a rural area, the animals feast on my flowers and will eat the plant down to the ground, usually just when the flowers are ready for pictures. We put a mesh fence around my metal tub, but the larger area was not protected. The morning I got up and found the gorgeous plant that was about to erupt into bloom had been completely eaten, we went out and got a motion-detecting spayer. It's WORKING!! These two blossoms are a few that are still alive after several days and I'm elated!!!

I chose this quote because it not only fits, but Steve and I are currently watching a very interesting, well-done BBC mini-series called, "The Impressionists", which is reconstructs the origins of the Impressionist art movement and features Claude Monet (among others). It's very good! :)

Claude Monet (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting Impression, Sunrise (Impression, soleil levant)Wikipedia: Claude Monet

I love the vivid colours of these two beautiful flowers! They look great on that dark background! I'm glad the motion detecting spray device is working to protect your plants from the animals who think you are planting them as their gourmet dinner! LOL! I have heard about these motion activated sprayers and I have heard that they work well.

Beautiful compo and bokeh! Sounds like a great program. I would have commented earlier, but my eyes were dilated. Certainly made everything look a bit like a Monet painting.
