I am feeling jet lagged, the distances we are travelling in such a short time, are amazing and exciting. China, I have changed my mind so many times, I'm still not thrilled with my final result, it is a mix up of my ideas.
The national flower for China was agreed in 1964 to be the Plum Blossom. The giant Panda is indigenous to Central mountainous areas of China. They live in highly dense forest areas, their staple diet is bamboo and the leaves. China regularly re-introduce Pandas back into their natural habitat.
I have many Orental stamps but it wasn't until I started this project I realised probably 90% are Japanese.
Continuing the story of Hermione and her parents.
"Hello Dearest - Father and I are thrilled with your idea to start using owl post. All of this interaction with the animal and birds kingdom is above us. We understand the owl will arrive wherever we are - we give it your post and it will be delivered to you. So will you continue to send your cards to us via owl post to Paris and then our courier will deliver to us? Love from Mum and Dad"
