This week I am showing you my neglected Aloe Vera plant – as it was some months ago. Feeling sorry for it, I have occasionally given it some attention. Perhaps in a little while I will be able to show you a thriving healthy plant. I know what you are all thinking….how could you possible neglect such a hardy plant? And a very useful one too, I am told.
Here are my pics. I decided this week I would repeat the same process on a series of images. And then choose just one to experiment further with. I ended up with so many I made them into a collage – the old, manual way, with Photoshop. I really must research some collage making software….
Thank you for your orange creations last week- they are some imaginative and varied. I wonder what you orange-ness you have for this week?
