A Few Garden Treats

This week's theme for Texture Tuesday is garden, a place I really need to spend more time. Several different textures were used on each of these photos.

My fairy friend watches over the garden. He looks a little wistful right now because his elfin fairy friend lost her wings and I've yet to glue them all back together. 

The reading fairy guards the front door. However, she rarely seems to look up. I know what's it's like to be so absorbed in a book.

The garden fence has the remnants of a birds nest hanging from it. Just this morning a hummingbird flew by it, taking some pieces for its own nest. Miss Gracie and Nipper were quite surprised and were a bit disappointed when it flew away. 

My new hydrangea bush just started to bloom this week. It was planted a few months ago and now has lots of buds, all ready to break into beautiful flowers. Finally!

Hi Sharon,

Lovely to come and visit you and your garden today.
I love the texture of your pansies and hydrangea.
Happy week

I wish hydrangeas like that would grow here; as it is, I have two hardy hydrangeas, but the deer eat them during the winter, and they don't flower very vigorously in the summer. Your garden inhabitants are lovely. Are those sand cherry blossoms in the reader's lap?

Hi Sharon,
I just gotta say, your photos are just beautiful. I keep downloading these textures, but haven't plunged in and tried them. They do make the pictures mysterious, don't they? I love them!
Have a great week.

Gorgeous series. I think I like the "reading fairy" best. Well, no, I like them all. Nice editing.
