One of my favorite subjects are flowers so that what Im' featuring today.
The stamps that were featured in 1981 are the Rose, Camellia, Dahlia and Lily.
These four stamps featured flowers which add beauty and brightness to America's gardens. The block was designed by Lowell Nesbitt of New York City.
The Rose is the worlds most popular garden flower and is the state flower of New York.
Gardening offers endless possibilites for self-expression and creativity. Since gardens are alive they are constantly changing and responsive to care. We as gardeners are taught patience and reverence for nature. In North America alone there are over 30,000 species of blossoming plants.
I have roses and lillies growing in my gardens.
Have a wonderful week smelling all of those delicious fragrances.
