A Postcard from Casa Colina

A postcard from Desiree - Casa Colina
This is the beautiful postcard I received from Desiree Habicht in southern California.

This is what she had to say about her visit to Casa Colina on the reverse.
This new rehabilitation hosital is absolutely beautiful.  We are lovers of the spanish and meditaerranean influences in our architecture.  Every street seems to have many subtropicals and varieties of palm trees.  Since we are here several times a week I often will run or walk the area whuch Jennifer has therapy.  Today, as I wait in the outdoor gardens, I am enjoying the sun and the warmth.  The birds of paradise are blooming and the boug. are just starting to open up.  Within a few weeks they will cover the nicely trimmed bushes with a neon pink.
Enjoy!
Note: Casa Colina is located in Pomona, California, about 40 miles due east of downtown Los Angeles on the San Bernardino Freeway, Interstate-10.

I can image how nice it is to sit outdoors in front of such a nice mediterian like surrounding - feeling the warmth and have the sun shining on the fingers. Beautiful!

Ah Desiree - This is a sight for sore eyes. So warm and peaceful looking! A complete opposite to London right now where it's raining! This makes me think of summer and has put a smile on my face. Super! Great pen work!

What a lovely card to get! Another place to make me say "Wish I was there." I think you handle pen and wash with an expert's touch. Just right.

Lovely card, and a place to sit and bask in the sun, as everyone says, a respite from our ice and snow.

This is lovely, beautifully observed but free, with a real sense of that warmth and tranquillity.

Here it's cold - so a welcome bit of sunshine :>)
