Once upon a time by patriciabrennan Once upon a time by patriciabrennan
Did you ever wonder about elephants?
Why are they supposed to be afraid of mice?

The ancient tree is in the grounds of Fountains Abbey where I visited recently.

The beautiful fairy is from :iconlisajen-stock: the wings a fractal from:iconlyastricity:

The tree spirit :iconatistatplay: my thanks to these wonderful stock providers :heart:

All other elements freebies, or my own.

Can you spot the green man?

Thank you for looking and allowing me to share my digital doodlings with you.

This is an absolutely stunning piece!

I remember that tree when I visited Fountain's Abbey last summer and I thought (at the time) that it looked vaguely elephant-like. :)
