My first card from Slovenia, and it's actually a Tunisian desert card! Desert cards were on my wishlist. Thanks Solecito for the card!
This card came from Finland but Mitchell Park is in the USA (Millwaukee, Wisconsin). Visitors to Mitchell Park Conservatory experience nature from all regions of the world. The three massive glass domes feature tropical, arid and seasonal displays including spectacular shows at Christmas and Easter. Vey nice card, thanks Tiina (tiiti)!
New Hampshire, USA - The old man and the moon. Interesting card. Legend has it that the Old Man of the Mountain is the face of Chief Pemigewasset, who died on the cliff waiting for his wife to return from her father's death bed. After this omen, the valley below became a peaceful gathering place for once enemy tribes, The Old Man of the Mountain is now one of New Hampshire's most intriguing landmarks. Thanks David for the card!
