Horticultural Rorschach

The front of a card sent by my friend Nicola made by her friend and hairdresser Kevin. Sent to mark my birthday.

Picture of a card sent by my friend Nicola made by her friend and hairdresser Kevin - parrot tulips -scabiosa - open interpretation

I love the translucent quality of the bloom. I think they are parrot tulips. Nicola says they could also be scabiosa aka pincushion flower.

I also love the tracing of the provenance of the image in her note.

Made for a very fine contribution to a very fine day.

Upon retrieving this fine bit of ephemera, I am reminded of the practice of Jan Morris who has a use for her books beyond reading: “I put letters and photographs and cards in them to find later.” So here tucked away on Berneval is a picture-holding memory.

And so for day 2734
