My 15th postcard

This morning's postcard is from Connie Rose, (blogroll)all the way from Fortuna, California (I've not been v good at mentioning places, sorry)

It is so gentle,  with beautiful subtle colors & hidden layers & all those stitches quietly defining.

I am calmed, thank you.




I am potographing this wonderful collection of cards, as I open one each day, on the bench at the back of the house. Only one day when it was raining & a couple when it was too windy have I gone into my greenhouse. No wonder my water butts are nearly empty! To the left of the bench is the workshop with birdhouse surrounded by a climbing rose. For three years we had blue tits, this year they turned up their noses & great tits moved in. I love watching, never thought I'd be so interested - I did managed to see a couple of broods flying away, so sweet!, & really hope I don't miss this one. Anyway, I'm no wildlife photographer but I do love this photo!



You can't see much without enlarging, look closer!

Lovely card from Connie. What a great shot and what a fantastic backdrop for their home. I am surprised that they want to leave.

A beautiful postcard Emma. What a lovely photo of your bird house. Looks like you have a beautiful hill behind you.

I love the colours in this card. very calming, just like taking time to watch the birds. We have house martins building a nest on top of our porch light.
