Great thanks Susanna let me feel great surprise on this week ! She sent me two beautiful covers, one made with map is her home town Oulu, and another one is blue coloured mosaic paper with a lovely ribbon. Two of them also franked with nice bird stamps, those three species are very common in Finland and also widely of northern Europe to Far East area of Russia.

Susanna also quoted an old Finnish verse on her letter, which praises the summer will come when birds arrive. The verse as below :

Kuu kiurusta kesään
puoli kuuta peipposesta
västäräistä vähäsen
nääskysestä ei päivääkään

Left : Sky Lark (雲雀) ; Right : Siberian Jay (北噪鴉)
