I find jigsaw puzzles very therapeutic and relaxing. When I'm feeling stressed, puzzles help me to unwind. And if I also have a cup of tea and some chocolates to go with my hobby, I am on cloud nine.
Garden Vistas no.2 - Summer Breeze 500pc jigsaw puzzle is the second in the series of garden scenes, created by British artist Anne Searle.
It depicts a wonderfully vibrant garden scene, a real paradise of blooms and flowers. The garden is glorious - with lavender, roses, pinks and lilies adding enticing aromas. Then there are colourful hollyhocks, poppies, irises, foxgloves, clematis and Sweet William. The path and the lawn lead to the rustic shed, which is framed by conifers. Imagine sitting in such a beautiful garden with a book and a cup of tea!
This jigsaw puzzle consists of 500 pieces. All cardboard pieces are made of high quality cardboard, and are easily slotted together. The cardboard has a linen finish print to minimise glare on puzzle image.
The puzzle is suitable for ages 10 years and up. It is quite compact in size - 49x36cm.
I have a couple of friends who love puzzles as much as I do, and I often pass the puzzles to them, once I have finished assembling. They, in their turn, offer them to their friends. I like the idea that several people will enjoy those puzzles.
This beautiful puzzle will make a lovely gift for any puzzle fan or keen gardener.
