Black Eyed Susans are perhaps one of my favorite flowers in the whole wide world. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make them grow in my yard. I guess they need to be, like watered and stuff, and don't simply subsist on threats and sarcasm. Otherwise, I'd be covered in 'em.

Fortunately, my neighbor has been able to make some grow.

I picked up this Photoshop technique somewhere on the internet. Love it. Except I may have suffered permanent damage to the tendons that control my thumb in the execution thereof. So my dilemma is: Whom do I sue? My neighbor, the photography blog, or the Adobe? Such a dilemma.
