What was in the mysterious package? This:

I loved her Blackberry Cove Herbal, and I'm very much looking forward to sitting down with Mugworts in May.

What a wonderful array of stamps. I don't quite understand it: are they decorative recycled ones? Pity the mailman took liberties with the barcode.
