Books & Roses

Painting by the Canadian artist Janet Hill

Postcard sent by Heleen (the Netherlands) for St George's 2016.  It arrived a bit late, so I never posted it. It can do for this year, can't it?

April 23rd is Saint George's Day, and in my country we celebrate the Books and Roses Festival. You are still on time to buy a book and/or a rose for someone you love!

  2. I love this tradition. A pity there isn't one like it here (or anywhere I have lived).

    1. Today I miss my country...

      You can start it. There’s nothing stopping you of buying books/roses (Who wouldn't like that?)

  3. I've sent exactly the same card (a little too late, too) this year :-) But: with a new book stamp and a rose :-)

  6. Books and Roses - two of my favorite things. definitely worth celebrating. In fact, it is still the 23rd here in California so I'll celebrate that my garden is filled with roses and my shelves are filled with books.

  7. I haven't heard of Books and Roses Day before this. Someone needs to tell Barns & Noble and Amazon!
