Flower Stall

Hi everyone. Hope this post finds you all okay today.

 I was going to show you Stuart's Birthday card today but my back went into spasm and I haven't been able to photograph it so I've got a card that didn't get posted last year. I hope you like it.

A close up of the stall....

That's all from me today. Hopefully my back will improve and I'll get to finally show you Stuart's card.
