Elderberry Tree Blossom

My favorite fast growing large shrub (small tree).  Bonus:  It bears beautiful berries every fall if not pruned the season before. I have two of these growing in our back yard and it rarely is bothered by bugs. Processed in Adobe Photoshop Elements using the Selective Coloring Technique.

I love ferns.  Taken with Canon Rebel DSLR EOS 500D T1i.  To keep them looking green and beautiful add 1 Tablespoon Amonia Cleaner to l gallon of water and apply when ground is wet.

Lady's Mantel Blossom And Leaves

Did a still life shot with this little bird and Lady's Mantel blossom. This perennial readily goes to seed so I enjoy sharing it with other gardeners.  Once done blooming I cut the entire plant off to about 2  inches above the ground and it grows back as a nice green mound after.  The blossoms have a soft sweet earthy scent and make a nice bouquet.
