Thank you so much Karen @ykarenes for the adorable honey Titina and friends postcard!! This is my first Titina and friends I’ve gotten card and I love it so much! Sooo cute! So cool your good friend is a beekeeper! I remember trying different honey flavours at a farmers market when I was younger, pink lemonade was always my favourite haha!

Thank you Crystal @farmgirll for the awesome Tennessee postcard!! So cool, I absolutely love all the different pictures! I’ve never visited Tennessee before but I would definitely like you. It’s was raining a lot last month but it’s been a really sunny May so far, so exciting!

Thanks so much Jason @JasonDavid for the beautiful Prairies postcard! I love it! The stamps and stickers are so fantastic too! Thanks for telling me about the auction, I can imagine the bittersweetness of it. I hope you’ve been having a wonderful May so far! All the best

Thank you everyone!

From @ykarenes, plant drawings done by Ebenezer Sibley in 1790! Today I returned from work to the lovely surprise that a kind neighbour had whipped my front flowerbed into tiptop shape! Thanks for the neat card, Karen!

From @moneill the summer house of FD Roosevelt on Campobello Island, NB - yet another 1970s 8-cent pre-stamped card for my collection, I cannot believe how many I’ve accumulated! My collection of Canadian 1970s 8-cent pre-stamped cards | Flickr
Meghan, I hope your dad loved the streetcar evening, what a great idea! Thanks for the great card (and love the cormorant stamp!)

The May cards have begun arriving!


Hello Karen @ykarenes ! Great card, thank you. I had to look up both fragaria ( wild strawberry) and haskaps. Apparently haskap berries are also popular in Japan. We did a lot of saskatoon berry picking when I was a kid, but I haven’t done that in years.

Cool Memphis card from @farmgirll
Sounds like your first horse camp was a success! I’ve only been on a horse twice in my life. I’m not exactly afraid of them… just nervous of their size and power lol. Thanks for the card Crystal!

I can’t guarantee that I don’t have any invasive plants, but I sowed some pollinator plants and local herbs on my front yard. I hope that they will grow.

From @reach4thestars a great card of the 1912 U of Toronto women’s hockey team! Very timely given the ongoing inaugural PWHL playoffs - hopefully Toronto has more success than their male counterparts! Thanks a lot, Stiles!

Hello! I received 2

@ykarenes I too would love to have beehives! Unfortunately we also live in a high rise that is south/west facing so plants don’t last long on our balcony haha
Lucky for us there’s an apiary not too far from us just down the river where we can watch the bees :slightly_smiling_face: thank you!

@farmgirll travelling is such a great excuse to buy new postcards! My kids like to point them out whenever they see a rack haha
Good luck with your reno and I just looked into the music garden, love the fact the roses are music/musician related. Thank you!
