3) DE-8900280 Michaela sent this nice artcard, depicting her obvious love for horses! Horses are magnificent creatures, I think. In Oslo, policemen use horses to patrol around the city, and Norwegians give much respect to this friendly animals, and police horses receive the same respect and appreciation as their riders. Stamps used show 1) the Wiesenschaunkraut or cuckoo flower. The second word in its latin name, Cardamine pratensis, means “meadow”. 2) Pippi Langstrømpe (norwegian)! Or Pippi Longstocking. Or Pippi Langstrumpf (german) – a famous cartoon character from the children’s series written by Swedish Astrid Lindgren. ❤

  1. ) DE-8879012 A nice postcard from Martine, showing the Eisenbach Castle in Lauterbach in Hesse, Germany. It was first documented in 1217. When the Eisenbach family died out, the Riedesel barons took over from 1429 up to the present. 🙂 Lauterbach, on the other hand, is famous for the oldest beer in state of Hesse. It would be nice to visit the place next time. I have only been to Berlin (in 2014 with my sister, and 2018 with hubby). ❤ Stamp shows knapweeds (Flockenblume/Centaurea).
