Photo Art Friday

This is a photo of Epimedium rubrum taken with a Lensbaby lens
 and adding two Pixel Dust textures, Quartz and Sweet Secret. 

Epimediums are a wonderful plant for dry shady areas of the garden. Their semi-evergreen
foliage often becomes bronze in cold weather. The short sprays of starry flowers, which appear in spring,
can be red, yellow, white and lilac in colour.
Epimediums are hardy from Zone 4 to 9 and grow 8 to 12 inches tall 
with a 12 inch spread.
I am joining Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art for
Photo Art Friday. 

Hoping you have a fantastic weekend!!!
