My son also showed me a cool technique in Photoshop where you can blur the background and create a false depth of focus without the need for an expensive camera that does it for you. I'll be using this again!
I also included a small pressie as it was a bit of a landmark birthday. I was trying to think of a way to make the wrapping more interesting. As Joanne is always coming up with interesting and quirky bits of knitting and crochet, I added this crocheted flower with a brad in the middle.
Spring is well on the way now and while photographing some craft items I took some pics in the garden. Our flowering cherry tree never fails but it's only at full bloom for 3-4 days before the petals drop. If you've noticed the huge pile of "straw" down the bottom of garden, I'm trying to spring clean the pampas grass!
I've never seen so much blossom as there is on our apple tree this year.
