These are mini-callas that just popped up in my garden. I'd given up on them, didn't think they'd even survived! I didn't have a good background, so photographed them against an off-white wall, then layered a scan of some cork into the image. #6163554

Vladan and Jessica, yes, I mentioned in the discussion above, these are mini-callas that grew in my garden--I didn't expect them to even come up! They're sort of misshapen but still have a great color. And yes, it is cork--I didn't have a good original background so I layered in a scan of some cork. #6165837
