Beatrix Potter

When I was little, my mother used to read me Beatrix Potter's books and then later (though it seemed only a flash) I used to read them to my sons when they were small.  I am waiting until my grandchildren are the right age for me to start reading them again.

This particular illustration is from The Tale of Peter Rabbit and it shows how Mr McGregor, the grumpy gardener, used Peter's jacket and shoes to make a scarecrow to frighten off the blackbirds.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
