Today, it was like the postcard senders knew me
I received my fifth and sixth postcards today as part of the Poetry Postcard Festival. The first one I looked at featured a lovely illustration of a girl blowing the fluff off a giant dandelion: really pretty! And then the second one was a flower fairy postcard! I'm not sure how well-known of a fact this is, but I absolutely adore flowers and fairies, and I have a deeply entrenched childhood love of Cicely Mary Barker's "Flower Fairy" books and illustrations. Alas, the postcard was not one of her images, but it was one of Amy Brown's, which I also like. The poem on the second card was also really lovely. And, by a nice conjunction of her card being late and me still trying to send mine early, the sender was on my list to send postcards to today, so I got to include a little note saying I loved her postcard. That's the kind of thing I was looking forward to when I signed up for this whole poetry postcard exchange.
