A cactus flower arrived on this nice exchange envelope from Carolyn, complete with a once every four years 29 February postmark. The stamp is from a set of 10 issued last year.
Some other flowers I've received recently include this one from the German definitive series. The 20c marigold stamp also has a very nice postmark from Bremen. Below that the 15c shows a meadowfoam flower (I think - I confess I've never heard of this flower), while the 10c shows a winterling, a type of buttercup.
hmmm, now I am curious as to why this ( Mar 8th) is the second worst day of the year?ReplyDelete
I like the name winterling for the buttercup :)
The clock change forward messes with me for weeks.Delete
ah, yes. I actually have just realized that it is really 4pm and not 3pm as my stove says! Obviously I am getting used to the automatic changes on phone, tv, computer!Delete
Me, too. I always struggle to correct the car's time twice a year. A lot of talk this year about getting rid of daylight saving - I wonder if anything will come of it.Delete
I was wondering too :)Delete
We change the clock the last weekend of March. 8 March remains an important day for European women!
Someone was interviewed here that runs his life and days as if it was summer time all year and said it makes him feel better.Delete
The German series of stamps is a big favourite for me, including the tagetes..ReplyDelete
I really like the series - and I am impressed that a set of definitives remains has such large stamps in this day and age.Delete
The combination on the envelope is perfect.ReplyDelete
It is a great match.Delete
Beautiful envelope and stampReplyDelete
I agree - a really nice piece to receive.Delete
