A Birthday present postcard

Crissi at random-ramblings-of-a-crafter sent me an alternative postcard, from Essex, UK. It's quite remarkable, a mixed media piece where she's put down a richly colored medium of some sort & pressed stamps & drawn into it revealing exciting layers hiding underneath, all on a canvas wrapped frame. More flowers & more love, wonderful!



I am enraptured, thank you!

It's been a mixture today of bright sunshine & a Haar rolling in. Earlier it was just whispy bits round the middle of the hills, now it's a complete whiteout! So here is some more blue & purple from the garden.












Aqualegia, allium in amongst rosa glauca, geranium pheum, honesty, siberian kale (they are coming out tomorrow!) & geranium. I know I'm showing off - note there are no sign of weeds, isn't that cropping tool marvelous!

love the card. our flowers are "just" hanging on. my husband made mixture of crazy soup made from hot peppers and chili powder ( his own recipe) to spray on our plants. This "natural bug spray" made his eyes water and clogged the sprayer. so far the plants are still alive...to soon to know how the bugs made out.
