It was a superlative jigsaw.
First, the larger-sized pieces allowed for a degree of immersion not possible with smaller pieces. Being only 500, with larger-sized pieces, it could be completed in a day.
Second, it was a useful distraction from the carnage in the kitchen where mouse after mouse scurried out from between the cupboard and the old chimney, and plunged headlong into strategically placed traps. The mouse plague had finally found its way to my place.
On a nicer note, I bought this jigsaw on my sister’s birthday as a present to myself.
It was a pleasant surprise; to find a new brand of jigsaw and to find it at the post office. Our post office sells an assortment of things. You never know what you might find, and I think that’s the plan. People pop in even if they don’t have anything to post!
I picked this jigsaw because, at first glance, it seemed a very green landscape. I wrote recently that I’d been avoiding green landscapes. On second glance, it proved to be a blue, yellow and brown landscape with a smattering of green. Again.
My favourite pieces to place were the blue ones. Again.
In this photographic series called “Mini Jigsaws”, I select a small number of odd pieces from a puzzle just completed and re-assemble them. The aim is to distill something of the experience thrown up by this particular puzzle.
This was a Hinkler Books puzzle called “Plitvice Lake and Waterfalls, Croatia”.
