Finland

A Finnish dosage now with some nice Finnish maps.
FI-517257

This map here gives me a summer impression, it feels happy and lively, and has....mhm mhm mhmm strawberries! And everything is so nicely green...i had my doubts between spring and summer but due to the strawberries, summer prevailed.
a nice round-shaped stamp issued in 2009 in a set of two, under the subject of Melting Glaciers.

FI-671803

If the one above showed summer, this one reminds me of autumn a lot....feels like the summer colours have faded away, and its time for harvesting....the colour of the grass feels more autumn-ish than summer-ish or spring-ish.


A lovely Auroras stamp...issued in 2009 in a set of 3, representing Northern lights....well, of course...
FI-705894

And here comes the winter...this one cant be interpreted any other way :)
Funny, but all these three cards came as officials actually...thanks to 3 different considerate Finnish postcrossers!


the stamp is a Christmas one, issued in 2008 in a set of 2 Christmassy stamps :)
