Bluebell Picnics..

As a child I loved to escape into the magical world of Bluebell woods, enjoying picnics on fallen logs surrounded by a sea of blue & heavenly scent.  A little while back I visited these woods here in Belgium and it took me right back.  Inspired by these memories I have created a new illustration titled "Friendship is sharing cake!"  


You couldn't ask for a nicer spot for a Tea Party than nestled in amongst the Bluebells, Bear is trying hard to listen to Rabbit saying how beautiful the flowers are, but his attention is leaning towards the last piece of Cake! As much as he loves Cake, he knows Friendship Is Sharing Cake



Available as an Archival Print & Set of Postcards 

Back soon with more promised photos from the Garden Fair. 
 Hugs, Catherine
