Still in Time of Covid
Well we did get the snowfall yesterday, Friday. So I guess winter has arrived early. Today it's cold and we have a wind chill. So a good day to be inside and blogging.
My first card for today arrived from Berlin. It's a Marilyn Monroe card and I know these are quite popular. Barbara, a postcard friend from the Netherlands collects Marilyn cards and I'm sure she'd love this one, if she doesn't already have it.
My next card , from Belgium, is a look at a number of buildings in Bilzen, a town in the province of Limburg. The card shows Alden Biesen Castle, Apostelhuis restaurant, the old town hall and Saint Maurice Church.
Johan used a most wonderful stamp on this card , and received a great First Day of Issue cancellation. The large stamp is 1 of 5 different in a 2020 mini-sheet entitled Fauna-The Big Five of Europe. It's just a beautiful sheet. Right up there with the 2016 Endangered Animals mini-sheet. Another of my favourites.
Today's last card is from France. It shows us Fort la Latte, a 14th century castle in northeast Brittany. It is a major tourist attraction in the St. Malo area. As old as the castle is, electricity only arrived there in 2015.
Dominique used a stamp from this year. It is a Tourism issue showcasing Rodermack
in northeastern France.
