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