Sunday Stamps II 123

Happy week after Easter.  And Spring is truly here in the American Midwest.

The theme this week for Sunday Stamps is lighthouses or windmills.  I just happen to have a stamp from Germany that I have shared before, some time ago:

Very much in the middle of the water!

Sunday Stamps II 122

Happy Easter!

I do have stamps with an Easter connection, that I have shared on my blog previously.

From the US Postal Service:
"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 their ship.

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."

So there is an Easter connection!

Sunday Stamps II # 121

Welcome to my contribution to Sunday Stamps.  Spring is really here in the American Midwest.
The theme this week is green.

I have some humble, everyday stamps, from years ago:

However, they sent many many postcards on their way, in the days when it cost a penny to send a postcard.  I have seen many of these stamps.
