And don't mind me using it to make myself a photo fabric hanging? My story - I live currently in the city, because I am divorced and have a son, who is 15.  I can't leave city until he is 18 and doesn't need his father's permission to do so. He has autism, so I am not sure, that he will live on his own at that time anyway, he said he will move with me. We have a small community garden plot right in the middle of busy streets now. I would love to make myself a wall size large hanging for the inspiration with permaculture style gardens and some birds, maybe goats. I do need large file as it would be very pixelated, if file is less than 3-4 mb size. Could you help me?

Maybe this would work for you...it's from our website for Slow Farm



I'd need to dig out the original before it was cropped.

Thank you, this is cute. I would have to see the original photo, because I will blow it up to a very large size on the fabric to hang on the wall, so it would be better more of the garden and smaller ducks, otherwise I will have giant ducks on my wall.  It will be like almost 3 meters by two meters size. I already have some with a forest and trees.

I don't really have the best of pictures, as most of mine were snapped out of the blue and not really at the right angle to make a pretty picture. I could only find a half-way decent one of my ducks around my herb spiral, and some of them in the pond and a few others that aren't that good. A lot of them aren't very large images (if you "open image in a new tab," you'll get a bigger picture than the thumbnail, but the camera I used was generally really low resolution). I'll keep looking! I'll also try to take some nice picture the next time I'm outside with my camera!

Wow! So many beautiful photos, thank you, guys. I really love Irene's cottage style permaculture photos, and now have hard time choosing between these (sorry, I do not know, how to make picture show up):

Those are gorgeous photos, thank you! However I look more of the photos of the garden with some ducks, chickens or goats as a small part of it. See, I am planning to put it on the fabric very large like 2 by 3 meters, which will take up most of the wall, so animals have to be small, otherwise I will have giant animals. I have some hung on the forest and it feels so good.

Thank you, Sebastian. These are stunning photos. But I am looking for small ducks in a garden, which takes up most of the photo as my hanging will be very large.

Thank you, Nicole. Your photos are close to what I am looking. They have to be minimum 3 mb as I will blow them up to the wall size.

I went out and took some more today. I believe they are all a little over 3mb (you may have to click the image to open it larger). I took a crazy amount, but these seem to be the best ones. It was hard getting pictures because they moved so much, and my camera kept trying to over-expose them!

Wow! I love all the duck photos !

Joy, I'm really sorry about the delay and I'm sorry too that the photos you chose are really small - only 800 pixels, as the camera I had at the time was not too hot, so they won't blow up very well.
You can download them here by right clicking on them and copying them to your computer to see what you think....

Chickens and flowers, I could watch them for hours


There's too much grass now for the geese to keep short

My more recent photos are bigger.

Sorry again, Irene x

Thank you, Irene. Yes, I tried and they pixelate if blown up even larger on the computer screen. They are so perfect, that now I want to cry...I will look at your the more recent ones.

I looked more and got to spend more than an hour-your farm is so beautiful- just the right mixture of wild look and caring hands.

These more recent ones are beautiful too, are they larger?

Thank you so much for doing this for me. You have lots of cuteness on the farm - babies and ducks.

Yep, those photos are as cute as anything !

All my photos on your new list are big enough. So now, go to the flickr link, then click on the arrow at the right side of each photo, click on the biggest size. When a new window opens, click on download and the photo will be copied to your computer.

I'm dying to see this wall hanging ! :-)

Irene, I tried to do that and it says  "The owner has disabled downloading of their photos". I think that is a standard setting on flicker, so unless you change it, I can't get them this way. Thank you for helping me.

The photo fabric finally came after more than a month! Thank you Irene, it is a great inspiration to wake up to. Yes, I do sleep in the hammock, because it is more cozy and comfy, and because it helps to prevent headaches. Here it is:

What a brilliant idea and I am so bloomin' honoured that you've done this with one of my photos.

Where do you get that sort of thing ?

Your photos are amazing, and homestead too!
I ordered it on ebay. They call them custom photo tapestry. Of course, tapestry is not the right word here, because it is just a fabric, printed. Picture is kind of blurry, but that actually adds to the charm as it seems like it is some distance away, so more real.
