If this is Thursday it must be postcards, 67

Norwegian postal stamps for 1990

Did you know that there are postcards with pictures of stamps on them?  These two postcards from Norway show the stamps issued in 1990 and 1992.  I do not know if they are part of an annual postcard series or just happened to be published these two years.  The 1992 postcard includes some stamps that were promoting Expo '92 and the Winter Olympic Games to be held in Lillehammer in 1994.  

The background photograph on the card above was taken or published by Knudsens fotosenter and shows Sognefjorden mot Nærøyfjorden. 

The background on the card below is of løvetann or dandelions and was photographed by Terje Hellesø.   We have dandelions here too and it was fun to see that this humble, hardy plant with the bright yellow flowers must be found in many different places around the globe.

I thought the stamps were pretty and since I had posted stamps from France it seemed like a good time to put up some from Norway also.
