Seventh Folder, Seventh Photo

I discovered this on Patti Szymkowicz's blog, and had to try it.
Go to your computer photo album
Go to the seventh folder
Go to the seventh image
Upload to your blog and tell what it is
(By the way, I am a huge fan of Patty's.)
This is a photo that I took several years ago at Elkwood Crossing Gift and Garden Center in Elkwood, Virginia. Laura at Elkwood creates beautiful little vignettes to find as you're wandering through the greenhouses and gift shop. She also has a very elaborate fairy garden complete with live plants to scale with the fairies. I'll have to post pictures of it in the spring.

I designed the logo for Elkwood when they first opened. I think that photo was taken when I was working on a brochure for them. Here is the logo:

The Elkwood photo is in sharp contrast to the weather that we are having today. Snow, snow everywhere. School is cancelled today and tomorrow. The kids are thrilled, and I have to say I'm enjoying it, too. This little snow family was left as a surprise on my doorstep on a snowy day last winter. Aren't they adorable?

What a fun surprise to see that you played along Leslie! What a glorious photo that is, certainly IS a huge contrast to the beautiful white stuff we got! Those little snow people are too precious and a surprise = too cute!
I certainly appreciate your kind words, you are quite a talent yourself! That logo is stunning, I think I 'need' to visit Elkwood sometime :)
