Two lovely cards with a newly discovered connection..

Two cards from different
parts of the world ,,

You will have to read to the end to see what the connection is!!!

My  lovely friend Krissa from the Philippines
sent me this  wonderful postcard from Singapore.
The flower on the front is
Heliconia Latispatha
(Golden Lobster Claw)
a native plant of Mexico and Central and South America
 I thought Krissa was  on holiday there.
NO , she has moved there for work!!

Her message on the card is very sweet..

"I have been away from my blog and postcard hobby,
but I make sure I remember the friends I have made" 

Wonderful to be thought of  from so far away
Big Thank you Krissa.

On Mother's day

I was given this beautiful
handmade card

and with it came this ...
Now you are really wondering what the connection is!!

Read below ...

Heliconias in the tropics rely exclusively on hummingbirds for pollination.
This accounts for their bright red, yellow and orange colors,
which attract hummingbirds.

Amazing what I learn when doing research for my fabulous cards.

    I love the way you meticulously research your subject matter, the outcome is always so interesting,
