A stamp issued by Bulgaria in 1964 featuring Maliovica / Malyovitsa Peak and Pine trees.

We havenít been to this area of Bulgaria but I have a photo of a pine tree near Sofia and some of its pine cones

Erinaceus europaeus,  Hedgehog

Five stamps issued by the UK in 1977 in a series named British Wildlife, Illustrated by Patrick Oxenham.
PHQ cards were also issued at the same time 
Several months ago, a friend of mine sent me the set of postcards depicting animals of the UK.

  Together with the Hedgehog you can clearly see some wild flowers.
