Oh they are so beautiful!! I keep seeing them everywhere here too and wishing I had planted some in my yard somewhere! I guess there is still time! I love how you used the texture!

I'm growing this grass, but leaving the pots in the greenhouse over the Winter, as theya re supposed to be tender plants.
I have to confess that I prefer your original view.

No only is Purple Fountaingrass a beautiful plant, but to see the glow of it in your photo is like magic. Your processing is lovely!

I really appreciate your sharing your recipe for using the texture. I still often struggle with the best ways to use textures. Your photo is beautiful - love that pop of purple - subtle yet still vibrant.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web, Donna. I write out the recipes as that helps me remember what I did, and was oh, so helpful for helping me deconstruct an image when I was learning how to do it. I'm glad you find it helpful, too. It always amazes me to see the before and after shots!
