It is still not Spring here in the Midwest USA, though it is slowly getting warmer.
However it is time for Sunday Stamps.
Our theme this week: Christian symbols, Easter symbols, or flowers, esp. cherry blossoms.
It is Easter, but I did not have any stamps with Christian symbols. I do have some se-tenant stamps from the US Postal Service website however, which are very pretty:
"The U.S. Postal Service commemorates the 500th anniversary of the naming of
Florida with the release of the La Florida (Forever®) stamps that
celebrate the state's floral abundance. During the Easter season of 1513,
Spanish explorers first visited the state we now know as Florida. They named the
land “La Florida” for Pascua Florida (“Feast of the Flowers”), Spain's Easter
celebration, and for the verdant display of vegetation that they could see from
The four se tenant stamps contain a cascade of blossoms that
evokes the feeling of a tropical garden. Each stamp shows a particular variety
of flower: red and pink hibiscus; yellow cannas; morning glories in white, red,
and shades of purple; and white and purple passionflowers."
Hmm. I guess there is an Easter connection after all.
Theme next week: minerals, rocks, geology, environment.
