A delicate spring twig - a postcard from Felicity to Ronell.

To receive a postcard from Felicity (sketches by Fiz), is like discovering a piece of rare botanical art.This is my very first postcard I receive here at Coin Perdu...and what a beauty she is is!!

Felicity wanted to do something with a spring feel and happened to come across this delicate twig from a Cornus controversa(wedding cake tree/table dogwood tree)), just starting to push its buds. with a gentle mix of spring greens and young vibrant browns, the twig seems to be waiting to burst open in all its splendour!

.............a close up on one section for a little detail.


.........on the back of the card, an unusual fir cone was added for extra charm.


.........and lastly, on the envelope, M Snail saw to the speedy delivery from Switzerland to France with his priority mail flag. I'm sure he has all to do with the safe delivery of Felicity's/my postcard.

Thank you for a special post card Felicity, done with your usual care and elegance!

I love the wedding cake tree name for this twig. It just fits, in with the delicate beauty that she drew.
