Eva sent me a very green tree-related envelope a while back. The stamps show olive trees (the four se-tenant stamps), the botanical sciences, and a famous Holm oak (Quercus ilex) found in the municipality of Zarza de Montánchez in Spain. The Terrona Holm oak is thought to be 800 years old. Even the crowns in the background of the definitive stamp are green.

Nice to meet these again. I really love the design of the olive tree stamp, especially with the four stamps together.ReplyDelete
I'm glad I remembered it for todayDelete
Love olive trees, always remind me of happy holidays in Greece.ReplyDelete
They are incredible trees - I'm always amazed how long they liveDelete
I would have to give that 800 year old oak a big hug if I came across it. The one with the leaf detail is lovely.ReplyDelete
The combination of stamps on this envelope is perfectDelete
I always love to see trees, and these stamps are beauties!ReplyDelete
Amazing trees, what would they have seen and heard in all those centuries of life?!
Many lifetimes of weather and human activities!Delete
