Spring and silly fun in my backyard...

I don't have that great of a camera, but it's okay on a good day, and it takes great close-ups.  The other day the sun was shining brightly through the spring leaves, so I took some pictures.  I love the bright green color of spring leaves!  In my spare time I've been working on a book cover for a fantasy novel that I wrote.  The manuscript is now being copy-edited, so I won't share the finished cover until it's uploaded to the Amazon Kindle.  It'll be a while, but here are some pictures of weird vines and roots that I took and manipulated, and of course a sword...  I was after a mysterious and slightly creepy look....

Hi, Maria! These are wonderful photos! They remind me of the movie, "Lord of the Rings!!!"

Another book - that is fantastic! Do you have a title to share?

I hope you are well and having a great spring! Nice 'chatting' with you again!
