Thank you for the kind words, CAndersen. I'm very pleased with the way my projects turned out. But, I have to say they were inspired pieces and not completely my own original ideas, although the execution of them was all mine. Instructions for the seats were adapted from a YouTube video. The hands were inspired by a few posts on Pinterest. And, the head-statue-planter idea came from a classically-themed one I saw on a visit to a local nursery. As for the plants, I can't take ANY credit for those; they're living works of art all on their own! Have a fantastic day!!

Thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback, spritezone5, especially the "positive" kind (ha, ha). I really like playing around with lighting and contrasting shapes, textures, and colors in my pictures. And, being an avid gardener, I'm always fortunate enough to have "willing subjects" to capture images of. My pictures also help provide documentation of what works (and what doesn't work) in my garden under the various conditions I subject them to. Now, as the season changes from Winter to Spring, I'll be sure to snap more photos that I can include in yet, another album here on DG. Crossing my fingers.... And, "Thanks!" again.

Thank you for the kindness, matty320. I'm far from being a "veteran" of this site as well so, I understand and remember the feeling of just getting acquainted with DG (D-avesG-arden). Let me officially say, "Welcome to the Group!" As you will find, people on here are quite receptive to inquiries and advice regarding caring for plants...of ALL kinds, too! I recommend checking out the various forums because they cover a wide variety of gardening topics. And, DG members span the entire globe so, you can communicate with people from the other side of the world who may happen to have climatic and environmental conditions very similar to yours. And, if you have pictures of your plants (flowers or foliage) or landscape projects, you too can create albums that showcase your successes and accomplishments. Again, welcome, and enjoy the site!!
