Cards From France, Singapore, and Germany


Hello again. Today I am starting with a card from Concarneau, France. It shows the entrance to the walled town , the ramparts and the clock belfry. The town has two distinct areas, the modern town on the mainland and the medieval Ville Close, the walled part on a long island in the centre of the harbour.

Jean Pierre used a recent 2018 stamp that showcases Careers in Art- this one a Ceramist.

My second card is from Singapore and shows a typical postbox in that country.

Kay used a couple of stamps from this current year 2018. On the left is 1 of 6 in a set issued for National Day. The other one is 1 of 8 showcasing Nursey Rhymes.

Germany is up next. Dominique's card shows Hambach Castle. It is a fully restored castle museum on the site of the Hambacher Fest, an 1832 German democracy festival, where the black, red and gold German Flag was raised for the first time.

Here we have one of the often seen, long running definitive Flowers set.

Hey , it's back to Singapore one more time. The Grand Sultan Mosque is front and center this time. Built in 1824 , with massive golden domes, the mosque is the focal point for Singapore's Muslim community.

Jobbo used a 2018 stamp, 1 of 4 in a set, showing Kampong Glam, a neighbourhood in Singapore, north of the Singapore River.

Last card time for today. How do you say Hello in German ?  Let me count the ways. According to this card, there are at least 14 ways .

Chris used a stamp issued this year. It honors the Lubeck Martyrs. The three Roman Catholic priests and one Evangelical - Lutheran pastor were executed by beheading on November 10, 1943.

There it is, the end until next time. Thanks for dropping by, and come again. Thanks for cards today go our to Jean Pierre, Dominique, Kay, Jobbo and Chris.
