An Orchid Remembrance

mouseover for before image
The original image is not mine, but it is most beautiful and I've been given permission to post it here since I did the enhancement.

It started when my new Flickr friend "Fernbrook," said his family had experienced a tender loss. He shared this with me even though we'd only "met" on Flickr because he liked what I had done with my Aspen Leaf with superimposed text and he'd hoped to create something similar in remembrance. He found he was having trouble coming up with the right words.

I began to ponder what words might be appropriate as I took my strolls. But, when he posted his already exquisite Phalaenopsis Orchid it all came together for me, so I offered this textured image as my gift to him and his family.

Textures thanks to Shadowhouse Creations. Textures used are Raised-Effect-2-Texture, Square 68, Stained 5.


  1. you are a rare friend, indeed, to reach out in such a compassionate way. A wonderful tribute.


  2. Very beautiful...Sorry I missed this before. I love your words here, too. Very poignant and touching.

  3. Beautifully worded Lissa ♥♥
