Just came across this lovely print - alright, it fell out of a book I opened - by @zjt_art Sent as part of last autumn's #oneofmanypostcard it resulted in a donation to @tree_aid Sadly not taking part in this week's installment of the wonderful #oneofmanypostcards project - its just been too cold to work in the garden print workshop... Warmer weather coming so next time...
Thanks #zjt_art!
