Emmarentia Gardens, Johannesburg


A beautiful card from Cathy all the way from South Africa, and I can almost feel the warmth of that African sun over here in Switzerland! She's perfectly captured the deep, warm colours and intense shadows of late summer and that little bench under the biloba trees looks so enticing!




I have to show the back too because as well as the colourful South African stamps and the stamp Cathy designed for Postcard from my Walk, there is an exquisite little watercolour of a flower growing in her garden. Thank you so much Cathy for this amazing card!

Well done Cathy! Lovely to see all that greenery at this time of year for those of us who are still looking at bare trees in the noerthern hemisphere.

I think that's one of the things I enjoy most about this project - seeing what other places in the world look like at the same time.

These postcards are lovely. I'm getting so much inspiration from them. I must get out my sketchbook! Janet in Seattle

A lovely sunny postacard and I think the composition is great - where you've positioned the chair is just right.

Super composition Cathy! I love the diagonal of the trees and just want to be sat on that bench enjoying all the lushness!

This precious postcard demonstrates once again what makes our project unique. Instead of sending us photos of all the beautiful places in this world, we exchange small art works. This is in a world of SMS, MMS, email and IPad the real avant-garde ...

Albrecht - I'll second that!

Cathy Gatland said...

Wow, have just seen this, thanks Felicity and everyone - Albrecht, you're so right, this is a special way to share our worlds!

Cathy how wonderfully captured! I think the lush growth and wonderful colors are perfect. I also have to agree that it is so wonderful that we get to share a small piece of each of our worlds!

Cathy said...

Beautiful card indeed!

I agree with all and the fact that I am a part of this is so special. Cathy l especially like the way you have placed a shadow under the flower.
