Tamarack reaching for the sky.

This is just one branch of the tamarack tree in our Condo's backyard. I used a textured background from my other blog: which is an actual piece of paper towel used in my painting and stamping.

Neighboring trees form a backdrop to our garden.

I have often said that when planning a garden/yarden we can borrow the neighbors yard as a backdrop. These trees have just done that! Click on photo to see a larger version.

Blending the tamarack and fruit trees.

Took a closeup of the tamarack tree branch and blended it in with the fruit trees in the backyard of our condo. The tamarack is like an evergreen except it looses it's needles in the winter. They are actually soft to the touch and the green is beautiful when they first come out in the spring.

Aviary home in appleville.

It was the bird house that attracted me to take this shot of the apple tree hence the name: Aviary home in appleville. Background Texture used for frame from The Last Door Down the Hall.
