Monthly Fav. Surprise RR * September ´19

Today my postman came twice!! That is something out of normal. Usually he comes around 10 but today he also came in the afternoon. I saw the mail car leaving my street and checked my mailbox just in case... and found one card, a card from this RR. 

In September the sur+rise cards arrived from Germany, Scotland, USA and Belarus. 

The beaultiful St. Elizabeth Church in the 4 seasons. My favorite view is the winter snowy view. Nice card sent by Birgit. 
The Russian Orthodox Church of Saint Elizabeth was built on the Neroberg from 1847 to 1855 by Duke Adolf of Nassau on the occasion of the early death of his wife Elizabeth Mikhailovna, who died in childbirth. The architect was Philipp Hoffmann. - in: wikipedia

Sabine keeps sending me great Scotish castle cards and I really appreciate that. 
St Andrew's Castle is a ruin located in the coastal Royal Burgh of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. The castle sits on a rocky promontory overlooking a small beach called Castle Sands and the adjoining North Sea. There has been a castle standing at the site since the times of Bishop Roger (1189-1202), son of the Earl of Leicester. It housed the burgh’s wealthy and powerful bishops while St Andrews served as the ecclesiastical centre of Scotland during the years before the Protestant Reformation. 
The castle's grounds are now maintained by Historic Environment Scotland as a scheduled monument. - in: wikipedia

The North Bridge, often colloquially called the Old North Bridge, is a historical site in the Battle of Concord, the first day of battle in the American War of Independence. The current wooden pedestrian bridge is a replica of the one that stood at the day of the battle. It and nearby sites are now part of the Minute Man National Historical Park of the National Park Service, an extremely popular tourist destination. - in: wikipedia
This historical card was sent by Jennifer.

I think this is the 1st time I received an animal card from this RR, a great one byt the way. I really like this Fauna of Belarus collection. Thanks to Natalia. 
The Fallow Deer (Dama dama) is a type of deer from the family Cervidae. The animal originally lived in Eurasia, but people have brought it to other parts of the world like Australia.
The male is called a buck, the female is a doe, and the young a fawn. They live for about 12–16 years. All of the Fallow Deer have white spots on their backs, and black tips at the ends of their tails. Only bucks have antlers, which are wide and shaped like a shovel.
They are grazing animals. They like to live in an area that is mixed woodland and open grassland. They try to stay together in groups of up to 150. - in: wikipedia
