Today’s featured postcard is from a Postcrosser in Finland, and it’s a wonderfully weird one! The artwork shows Death taking care of plants, and was painted by Finnish symbolist artist Hugo Simberg inn 1896. It’s a strangely charming image, with Death as a gentle character carefully tending plants that symbolize human souls.
The card comes to me from Outi, who lives in Tampere in the south of Finland. Like the Grim Reaper, apparently, she is an avid gardener. She also loves to read, watch movies, and listen to music. She adores all kinds of animals, especially her 10-year-old cat. And she loves to walk in nature, through the forest during the day, and under the stars at night.
