Can someone turn this pic into colour?
« on: Friday 14 October 05 08:31 BST (UK) »
These ancestors of mine had this wonderful garden.  Can someone turn the colour on - Please.  The little boy was killed in action in New Guinea in WW2. Poor little fellow.

TIA

Hi Reg

I am total rubbish when it comes to colouring, I hope kizmiaz or vikky pick-up on this posting I think it would look stunning.

All I can offer is a cleaned up black & white copy  :(

Thanks Trevor for your input.

Thanks Ken.  Looks good in B/W.  I look forward to some variations in colour.

Sorry,

Haven't had a lot of time to do much to this.

Just a quick colour to give some vague idea. I have not one little bit of horticultural knowledge so the colours are just a bit of a wild stab in the dark.

Its very rough, and I'm really not happy with it, so may give it another go at some stage.
