A great cover from Germany!

Just a short posting to share a great cover that I received today from an ICCC member, Heidemarie Skrotzek from Oberderdingen, Germany. Thank you very much! The horses stamp franked on the left corner belongs to the "Pet Animals" series, issued in 2007. The 4 gorgeous stamps in this set depict popular pets; Guinea pigs, Rabbits, Dogs & Horses. Aren't they cute?
The top right stamp was issued on 3rd July 2008 to honor Franz Kafka on his 125th birth anniversary.
Franz Kafka was one of the major German-language fiction writers of the 20th century. He was born to a middle-class Jewish family in Prague. His stories, such as The Metamorphosis, and novels, including The Trial and The Castle, concern troubled individuals in a nightmarishly impersonal and bureaucratic world.
Lastly, the bottom right stamp is part of the ongoing definitive series devoted to fields and gardens flowers.
This cover took 7 days to travel to Singapore.
