Jane Austin for MMM

We've gone all Literary at MMM this week.
 Mynnette is the hostess with the most-est for the week and she would like us to be inspired by one of her favourite books, Persuasion by Jane Austin either by, the book cover, the story or both!
Here's mine inspired by the story.

Persuasion is a love story really... and my tribute is an image of Anne waiting in the garden after she has received a letter from Captain Wentworth, you can just see it at the bottom right peeping from under the curled DP... there's a little heart peeping too. The large flower is all about the letter too.
 I know that Captain Wentworth sends Anne a letter near the end of the story but I've no idea if they met in the garden..... that's my bit of poetic licence.





This is the book cover inspiration.












This is a quick post... I have visitors tonight (Sunday) and out early-ish Monday but wanted you to have my MMM post. Hopefully. I'll be able to fill in details later .. but you are welcome to ask.... please do.  :o)
 thank you for looking
 Bye for now
