The detail and variety of colours, yet balance work well for that 'painted / story book' effect. I like it. The blue of the sky, while quite intense, matches the feel of the house and trees.
The house looks snugly surrounded by all the trees.
Thank you for sharing the story about the walnuts... it brought back childhood memories of collecting and drying walnuts from many years ago!
Nice natural look, Bynx - thanks.
