I "received" this postcard from Russia last Sunday, while we were out of town.  My husband discovered it in his truck!  At some point, he apparently had gathered the mail from our mailbox at home on his way into the driveway after work...and had left it in his truck.  The postcard was sent four months ago.  :/

The sender of this postcard wrote that it shows a steppe (something like a prairie) in spring.

When I researched, I discovered the following:
  • A steppe is an Eco region, characterized by grassland plains without trees apart from those near rivers and lakes.
  • A steppe can be semi-desert, or covered with grass or shrubs or both, depending on the season and latitude.
  • A prairie is an example of a steppe, although it usually is not called such.
