Tropical Color in the Garden

I love tropical looking plants in my garden! I love the big, textured leaves and the vibrant color of the flowers. Since I live in the midwest, we can only grow them as annuals in our backyard. We keep as many as we can as houseplants when it turns cold, or let them hibernate in the garage over the winter. I've taken a few photos of some of the unique details of these pretty plants, including hibscus, banana and cannas.

Then I made a simple collage using the photo editing software, Picnik. If you are not familiar with Picnik, it is a free photo editing software that you use online, in your browser. You can easily rotate, crop, resize or color correct your photos. Or you can get Picnik Premium for $24.95 a year and get the collage feature and many more advanced editing tools. If you are looking for a simple, inexpensive way to edit your photos to use online, or share in Flickr, Photobucket, Facebook, and more, take a look at Picnik.
