Pinkish Purple Saturday

Here is a photo I took this morning of a red bud tree (with the 8MP camera on landscape setting on my Droid phone) .  I was going for an artsy effect.  It looks more purple than pink but this is what I have for today's Pink Saturday--so let's call it pinkish purple. I think I may use this photo as a background for an ATC or tag. I thought that branch at the top would make a good frame for the shot, but now it looks a bit heavy to me.  Hence the idea to use this for some mixed media art.  

Thanks to Beverly for her Pink Saturday idea.  Her blog badge is on my sidebar. My tree is a good celebration of our first Pink Saturday of spring!


Last week on Pink Saturday, I visited Diane's link to discover her blog, Confessions of the Obsessed where she had set a delightful table for the Cherry Festival.   Since it was St. Patrick's Day and we were posting green as well as pink, I also clicked on Pat's link and found her blog post on St. Patrick to be wonderfully informative.  I can't wait to see what new adventures are in store for me this weekend!

What a gorgeous photo, Helene. I've never seen a tree like that. I think I'd want to climb it if I saw it in real life!
