Sugar Mountain

Lilac bud
The buds get bigger every day. I love how they look at this time of year with their deep purple hues and sugary texture. SkeletalMess texture applied, available [here] as a free download. Blending mode set to linear burn @ 39% opacity.

Oh to live on Sugar Mountain, with the barkers and the colored balloons. You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain, although you think you're leaving there too soon. You're leaving there too soon.
