It reminds me of a giant okra pod, with 'appendages'.

Wikipedia says "Okra is an allopolyploid of uncertain parentage (proposed parents include Abelmoschus ficulneus, A. tuberculatus and a reported "diploid" form of okra). Truly wild (as opposed to naturalised) populations are not known with certainty and the species may be a cultigen. The geographical origin of okra is disputed, with supporters of South Asian, Ethiopian and West African origin"

So perhaps the wahoonie is one of the "uncertain" parents of the domesticated okra plant.WinkWink

I have the annual LBE subscription as it saves me quite a bit in postage over the course of the year and I’ve finally been tempted to have the first few from this year delivered. I wasn’t thrilled with the earliest offerings this year and then COVID hit, so I haven’t been in much of a rush, but I’m now feeling enthused enough about the Wahoonie, Sam Vimes, and Guild of Artificers stamps to be itchy to put them into my DW stamp book! Thanks for sharing the scans.

As an aside, have you tried removing cancelled stamps from the Emporium covers? The glue separates nicely but the cancels run somewhat when I try soaking. Any suggestions? I’ve considered fixing the cancels in place with methyl cellulose but that seems a bit extreme...

All the best,
Philip
