Butzbach, Germany

Reed roof house, North Germany

This nice postcard with a garden and reed roof house was sent to me from Butzbach, Germany.

Many of my pelargoniums were bred in Germany. The most recent is Graziosa Cherry Picotee an interspecific hybrid from Dümmen

Postcard from Taiwan


Received this For the Love of Nature postcard from a member in Taiwan. It is a close up view of a locust. As a gardener, I prefer these on photos and not in my garden. The photo is very clear and the focus perfect.

Kemi Finland


Received this Sunset postcard from Kemi, Finland. It shows a view of Kukkolankoski, between Sweden and Finland. A place popular for white whitewater rafting.
