The Guildford Castle gardens are a riot of colour at the moment, with a plethora of poppies in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.
The image has been altered (accidentally) to give the impression of an illustration rather than a traditional photograph.
I captured this close-up photograph of a Money Puzzle Tree at the end of August on a visit to Winkworth Arboretum.
As it has been raining (again) this afternoon, I thought I would play around with image using Photoshop Elements. I downloaded one of the Free Textures from Borealnz (via Flickr) called Green Dream. By layering the original image and the textured background together it has enabled me to create the new washed out image below.
