Summer Postcard Blog Hop

 I received a lovely postcard from Christine:

She writes:
The biscornu is one I made a few years ago from a Victoria Sampler design. The colours really remind me of summer flowers. The other photo is of my Apothecary's Rose, which has a very short flowering season but smells divine. My garden reminds me of the way Lady Katherine described Elizabeth's - "Miss Bennet, there seemed to be a prettyish kind of a little wilderness on one side of your lawn." Only my lawn is gradually being annexed by the wilderness!

Sounds like my kind of garden -- a little wild.  Thank you Christine.

If you want to see more pretty garden pictures in stitches, visit Jo.  She's hosting a summer postcard blog hop.  This is my first time participating in a blog hop and I'm happy to say it's fun.  If you've never tried it, give it a go.  I'm sure you'll have a good time.


  1. Christine stitches and makes such pretty things, she chose such a lovely design to add to your postcard.

  2. I totally agree, Julie. And I especially like this one because it's pink -- my favorite :)

  3. Thanks for taking part, my lawn is definitely overshadowed by the wilderness!

  4. Oh wow! That is very, very beautiful.

  5. Such a beautiful postcard from Christine.

  6. Very pretty biscornu, must be on my list for the second half-year.
    Love the picture too, like a four-leaf clover full of joy and hope. xxx

  7. oh, that's an adorable biscornu! I think I have something similar from the VS, makes me feel like going back to it - it's such a lovely piece! I'll have it done by next summer! ;)
    I agree with you, garden shoudl always keep a slight wilderness, after all it's nature, and nature is never really calm :)
