I've been lucky enough to have received a number of cards from New Zealand recently but in fact this one arrived about a year ago. It shows Olveston, a residence built for a local businessman, David Theomin. It was lived in by his family from 1906 until 1966 when it was left to the city of Dunedin. It has been preserved in its original state.
The stamp shows an example of a kowhai tree and its various parts. The kowhai is native to New Zealand. There are several species but the one shown is Sophora microphylla.
I was fortunate to find other examples of trees on stamps. The three above are from the Ukraine series which quite a few people seem have.
And finally these lovely stamps from Singapore, the tulip tree and Senegal mahogany.
