Puzzle: Beautifully-complex puzzle with many colourful regions. There are many ways to approach it: some of the easier parts to assemble first are the turquoise flower pot, the blue box in the bottom right, the red cloth draped over the bench, the checkered rose tablecloth, the pears and their bowl, the large and smaller red vases, the yellow flowered tablecloth, the bottom left corner, the flowers in the vases, and the river in the background. There are many other smaller distinct regions that can then be positioned in place.


  1. Hi Veddma – I am collecting all of John Powell’s jigsaw puzzles and do not have this one. I would love to have it in my collection. Where did you get it?

    I am also a puzzler. I always have one going. I have really enjoyed looking through all of the puzzles that you have done.
