Last week I did not set a future theme for this week, so let's have it be anything you wish. As I have done before when the theme is open, I would like to share some mineral stamps.
From the left: Uranium ore, quartz, aragonite, and malachite, on stamps from Benin. (I hope I haven't shown these before!)
I hope everyone is having a great summer, and looking forward to a great fall. My thoughts are with those of you on the East Coast of the USA (including my parents) who are facing the rain and wind from hurricane Irene.
Theme next week: The ocean. Beaches, islands, coral reefs, fishes, whales, sharks.....
Then we are going around the world.
