Thailand: Nymphaea "Queen Sirikit"

On Tuesday I got two postcards: one from Thailand and one from Canada.

The card from Thailand shows the Nymphaea "Queen Sirikit". The Nymphaea "Queen Sirikit" is a water lily hybrid. It was created over a period of four years by a plant specialist of the Agriculture Department. The Botanical Society decided to name it in honour of Queen Sirikit.

The card was used to create a maxicard. The stamp was issued on 10th August 2016 for the 32nd Asian International Stamp Exhibition.


Stamps:
King Bhumibol (from set of fourteen) (issued 10-10-2010)
80 years Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University (issued 17-05-2017)
with First Day Special Postmark


Thank You very much Cherry!
