Have been busy with genealogy today, having made contact with a fourth cousin who has just started researching the family tree. Great news is she lives near where the ancestors came from - so hopefully when the better weather comes she will be looking up church records for the "clan".
Anyway I took a break from the family tree and saw that the second lot of snow early this evening had settled, and this is a photo of the tree fern outside my back door. (I normally wrap it in fleece for the winter, but hadn't got round to it this year - but it does look pretty).
I then played about in paintshoppro and created the background paper effect with the image. I love taking photos of plants/flowers in the garden and "mucking about" with them.
