a batik fern

experimenting with fabric!
this is a cutout of a fern frond
over a wild piece of batik 
I  could have 
made lots of different patterns
with just one piece of fabric
I definitely will try this again
it would be a good way to
add wall art to match a quilt
and get a bit of the garden in, too

just a rose bush

a few photos of a multiflora rose bush
down by the pond behind our house
it is a good place to watch
birds and bees
and the change of seasons

HDR sleepy forest

we are in our fourth day of gray clouds
this was taken on monday,
 but could have been any day 
I used the basic program in Aurora HDR
the name for this black and white setting is
 sleepy forest
very fitting, 
since the trees are just ending their winter slumber
this is probably the last week the trees will be see through
I have enjoyed the giant oaks most of all

raindrops in the garden

raindrops are one of my favorite things to photograph
some plants hold them better than others
the top shot is chives
the bottom is garlic chives
grass is great, too
these were taken with a zoom lens
