Sunday Stamps II 92

Welcome to a beautiful fall day in the American Midwest.

The theme this week is fruits and nuts.  My stamps is from Belarus:

As I posted before:
This is the gooseberry or Grossularia, on a stamp from Belarus.  We do not know gooseberries and do not use them in the USA, or at least very rarely.  I do remember seeing them for sale, fresh, and as preserves, when I visited Poland. 

According to Wikipedia: "Gooseberries are often used as an ingredient in desserts, such as pies, fools and crumbles. They are also used to flavour beverages such as sodas, flavoured waters, or milk, and can be made into fruit wines and teas. Gooseberries can be preserved in the form of jams, dried fruit, or as the primary or a secondary ingredient in pickling, or stored in sugar syrup."

Sunday Stamps II 91

Hello and it's time for Sunday Stamps.  The theme this week is worshipful places.

I guess I interpreted this a bit differently that other players today.  I wasn't thinking of a church but of a place of natural beauty with a feeling like a cathedral - Muir Woods, a redwood grove north of San Francisco CA.  And, if you look at, you can even find a stamp with a redwood grove image:

I have been there and the tall trees are like pillars in a cathedral, with the light filtering down, dappling the ground.  Because of the low light, there is little undergrowth and nearly open ground between the trees.  It really is a worshipful place.
