  8. Hi Zoe

    Wow, this is so pretty and summery, I love it. The fusion of colours on the main image is right up my street.

    Am I making you step outside your comfort zone again, I think so from what I remember reading when you did flowers a few weeks ago. And that time I said you should do it mmore often as you do it so well.

    Thank you for joining us at Penny Black at Allsorts this month and good luck.
