Doug's topiary garden


Photographer: dogtrombone Title: Doug's topiary garden
Doug's topiary garden was his pride and joy. I've used the tree, the telephone and the small green plant from the hand shot. Plus, for those who've been paying attention, you might see some familiar friends from weeks gone by. I've used additional images from my own stock library. All done in Photoshop, except for Doug, the running kite boy, and 2 pigeons done in Poser.

Tip
How to fix a lock that sticks
Graphite powder comes in a small squeeze tube. Simply uncap the tube, place the tip of the tube in the keyhole, tip the tube up slightly and give a couple of squeezes to blow the powder into the lock. Now insert your key repeatedly and turn the lock repeatedly to work the powder into the lock. You should also lubricate the bolt by squeezing graphite into the cracks around the bolt or latch on the edge of the door.

Recipe
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 package (1 ounce) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix
1 can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles, drained
1 cup milk
2 eggs
