Texture Tuesday

We've been having fun with polaroid frames over at Beyond Layers - so much fun and so many possibilities!  They make me very nostalgic....

I am loving the roses in my garden at the minute.  I only planted them last year but they've really come into their own.  Lovely, multi-layered roses in creams and pinks with the most gorgeous scent.  I am very much an inexperienced 'try it and see' sort of gardener and I am so proud of my success with my roses.

This week's theme at Texture Tuesday is to share a favourite image and my image is a mix of many favourites - home-grown roses, some seasonal sweet william, displayed in fun little pots and cups I found lying around at home, processed with a Kim Klassen texture (flourish) and placed in a polaroid frame.  For me, this evokes childhood summers at my granny's who was a fabulous gardener and florist and who always had the most beautiful, seasonal, English flowers in her garden.

Hop on over to Kim's site to be inspired by more favourite shots.
