Herne, Germany


Received this card from a fellow gardener. It gives us 8 impressions of Herne in North Rhine-Westphalia. This part of Europe is in hardiness zone 6b. Meaning it rarely gets colder than - 5 F (-20 C)

I've sent a birthday card to a Postcrossing member in Japan. As a thank you she sent me this lovely card of the bamboo garden in the Hokoku-ji temple.

I'm learning about gardens around the world through postcards.

Sugar Hill, New Hampshire


Received this postcard today and I am delighted. In my Postcrossing profile, I've asked senders to mention a Botanical Garden in their area and Angela suggested I look up Tower Hill. Now I want to move there.

The view on the card is of Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. They have fields covered in Lupines. They even have a Lupine Festival. Now I have two reasons for wanting to visit this state.

Postcard from Taiwan


Received this lovely postcard showing a bay of Sun Moon Lake, Nantou, Taiwan. According to Wikipedia, this is the largest body of water in Taiwan. Plus the area has an interesting history. A place I would love to visit with a few cameras.
