Bluebell Woods


This picture of nuno felted bluebell woods is my February submission for 'The Festival of The Trees'. For those of you that are unfamiliar with 'The Festival of the Trees', the festival is a monthly wordpress magazine celebrating trees. I find the festival very educational and inspirational. Each month there are articles written by aborealists, ecologists, botanists, professional photographer's, artists, poets and creative writers. Sometimes there is a theme underneath the broader canopy of trees, but mostly, anything tree like is accepted.

This months deadline is 26/2/10 and March edition of the festival will be released on the 1st March. Why not join in the fun?

I am also submitting this picture to 'Ideas of Inspiration' which is a collaboration of artists who respond to a theme prompt twice a month. Right now, the theme is 'B'.

Your pieces are beautiful, you have made the trees come to life.
The festival of trees sounds lovely. I am a Tree lover and have a slice of a Tree in my bedroom I was lucky to rescue from the tip.
It is the most beautiful thing in my home :-) I wish I could show you it.
