|Topiary in the front garden of the Chateau Dumas|
I've been waiting a long time for my postcard from Bridget Hunter. First of all it went astray - except I didn't know I was due to get it. So then I had to wait until the end of the month to work out who might have sent my missing postcard - because of who had not had a painting listed in the month.
I finally worked out it was Bridget, wrote her an email and she very kindly agreed to send a second one. In fact she painted three in total as she decided it was boring doing the same one again!
So this truly beautiful postcard - which I am so very pleased to now own - is of the Chateau Dumas in South West France. Bridget recently stayed there during a spell of gorgeous weather and describes it as a painter's paradise, inside and outside, with a still life or landscape around every corner!
This particular view is of the formal garden at the front of the house. Bridget shares a love of topiary with me. She says that the beautifully shaped bushes made her feel as if she was in the garden of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland.
