Flowers of the North from France
A lovely new surprise from Eric! One of the 12 sheets showing the flowers of France, taken from the booklet Flore du Nord (issued on 27 April 2009, pre-sale and special cancellation on 25/4, letter actually sent on 28/4). These nicely painted stamps present rose for Picardie and potato (la pomme de terre) for Nord-Pas de Calais, apart from them, there are five other sheets for the North and 6 for the South. The face value is currently 0.56 euro (priority letter within France up to 20 grams). Thank you very much!
