Sunday Stamps: Trees

 Good day, and welcome to my blog.  It's about 30 degrees F in the Great American Midwest, and it is snowing gently.  We expect 2 -3 inches.  It's very pretty, on the trees and bushes, but driving could be tricky.

It's time for Sunday Stamps, and the theme this week is trees.


These older stamps from Poland came from a lot I purchased on ebay.  The trees shown are pear (on the left) and cherry (on the right).  Thank you to Google translate to help me translate the Polish!  I certainly didn't recognize the Latin species names.

In spring we'll see flowering trees like this.

Sunday Stamps: Music makers

 Good day, and welcome to a cold sunny day in the American Midwest.  It's time for Sunday stamps.

This week's theme is music makers.

This stamp commemorates Pete Seeger (1919 - 2014), American folk singer.  He travelled and collected folk music from around the USA, and wrote some important songs himself. (If I had a hammer, Turn turn turn!, Where have all the flowers gone?)  The stamp is part of the Music Icons series.  This is a current stamp offered by the US Postal Service.

Sunday Stamps: Geology

 Good day, and welcome to my contribution to Sunday Stamps.  I am sorry I didn't join in last week, but I really did not have appropriate stamps for the theme.

The theme today is geology, one of my favorite themes!


This is a stamp from my Postcrossing days.  From Hong Kong, it shows a rock formation on an outlying island.  These are tilted sedimentary rocks, eroded and sculpted by waves into a sea stack.

Sunday Stamps: Christmas

 Welcome to a very cold day in the American Midwest.  It is 9 degrees F right now.  Friday was even colder - a high of -6 F.  I wish you a Merry Christmas, and Happy Solstice.  It is Christmas today, but also time for Sunday Stamps.

Our theme today is Christmas stamps, of a religious bent.  The US Postal Service issues secular stamps and religious stamps every year.  This year's religious stamp:

A Madonna and Child.

Have a special day today!
