My wife - the Lovely Linda - says having this Potpourri hanging around in a bowl makes the house smell good....After being married for 32 years, I just agree.. I do know that it's like her - it sure looks pretty!

juant3 from Bremen, Germany

Wonderful colors and a great eye for making something so simple as Potpourri look so magnificent! One thing I most ask, how do you get the red to come out always so good? Is there a "photographer's trick" or is it just having a good cam what makes the difference? Btw, greetings to you and Linda from Germany!!! I am sure you made her day!

18 Feb 2007 4:30pm

@juant3: Thanks Juan - your encouragement keeps me going! Juan, I usually look at adjustments on most colors in Photoshop - it is easy to over saturate and must guard against it! Under Image - adjustments - hue/saturation - you can saturate the master image or individual colors... Good luck and thanks again!

Kaushal from Groningen, Netherlands

Anne from White Rock, Canada

Never seen such a lovely pot pourri! Colors and detail lovely! You are lucky you have such a lovely wife as Linda, and really nice of you to let her know! I used to do such things - but now my pot pourri is some smaller stuff you buy in a bag.

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

I love the smell of potpourri and of course those heavily scented jar candles...Mmmmmm! And it does look pretty too, as long as the cat doesn't get to it.

Love the colors and all the shapes and textures.
