A picnic on the grass

Every so often you see an image that sparks something in your imagination and here is one that has done just that for me.  A card arriving last week from Norway of a painting by Helena Ferm Saliba has done just that.   

A picnic can mean so many different things, a makeshift meal, an outing with the children or, I like to imagine, a romantic meal for two outdoors.  And it must be just that here.  Look at the meal: only enough for two - bread and fruit in the basket, cheese and grapes on the plate, a bottle of what looks very like champagne and two glasses, all on a cloth laid in the meadow and surrounded by blossom.

There is a girl's straw hat on the cloth but where has she gone?


  1. She may have gone down to the stream to check on the beer they've placed there to cool. :) A very nice picture.

  2. You have a great blog here. I like reading unique blogs like yours. I have a site myself which provides information on popular vacation destinations. I want my site to be a place where anyone from around the world can come and have that vacation spirit or "vacation feeling" as you can tell from my domain name.

    I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible.


  3. The picture looks fantastic. This is how all picnics should be. :-)


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