I have actually been making some greetings cards lately to replenish my stock
A few of the many Christmas cards in the making
The Smoke Bush (Cotinus) finally shed its leaves in the wind this week but I managed to catch these pretty and delicate colours before it did. This bush changes through the most beautiful colours from Autumn through early Winter. It turns from deep burgundy to scarlet and then this mixture of pink and gold. Today it is bare deep wine colour stems waiting to be cut right back in the Spring.
