Card no 83 – Kim (stjohnsgirl) – Ontario, Canada

The Canada Geese are returning to Northern Ontario – they are beautiful but noisy, says Kim whose mother is from Liverpool and whose brother and his family lived very near us for many years.

This stamp shows “The Big Potato” in O’Leary, Prince Edward Island.   Prince Edward Island is home to a potato museum and is known for their potatoes.

This 2011 stamp is part of a baby wildlife series and shows a Fox in a log.

Canada Post’s floral stamps series for March 2012 is Canada’s 7th floral issue. Photographer Isabelle Toussaint shot these gorgeous daylilies at the Ottawa’s Experimental Farm, where all Canadian hybrids grow together in one area.  Daylilies (Hemerocallis) are native to Eurasia, including China, Korea and Japan.  Of the more 60,000 registered cultivars available, this stamp features Hemerocallis fulva ‘Louis Lorrain’.

This card arrived on 7th June, travelled 3,351 miles and took 9 days.

Total so far – 263,107 miles; 22 countries (including 8 US States).

Countries from which I have received cards as at 1st June 2012 are shown in green on this – map
