Sunday Stamps II 118

Welcome to my post for this week's Sunday Stamps.  Just enough time to do this before heading off to church.
My stamps were originally posted on my blog in 2014:

From the US Postal Service, a collection of winter flowers.

Sunday Stamps II 116

The theme this week is roosters or chickens - a nod to the Chinese New Year I think.  I am showing a scan from the US postal service, also shown by one of SeeitonaPostcard's contributors:


From the USPS website:
Around the world, a new year is welcomed with gifts, noise, and celebration! A red envelope (hongbao) featuring a colorful illustration of a rooster highlights the 2017 Lunar New Year: Year of the Roosterstamp from the U.S. Postal Service, tenth in the Celebrating Lunar New Year series. The characters at the top of the envelope form a common Chinese greeting of celebration and wish for prosperity and good fortune, used most frequently during Lunar New Year. The Year of the Rooster begins January 28, 2017, and ends on February 15, 2018.

Pretty!  And cherry blossoms too.
