National Flower Series

I love plants, I love flowers and I like puzzles. I have sang “Elder Weise” to my kids and not until recently that I know “Elder weise” is the national flower of Switzerland and I told myself that I want to take this opportunity to compile all the flowers emblems in the world within a period of two years. I have learned a lot from the compilation of these series and so far I have completed the South East Asia and East Asia series. This page will serve as an index page.
