"Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from which we get sunshine when dark, somber skies blanket our thoughts."
Flowers, indeed, brighten up one's gloomy day. So for this week's Sunday Stamps, allow me to perk up your Sunday by featuring these lovely flower postage stamps from Finland.
The first stamp features red amaryllis belladonna flowers. It was released on 06 November 2009. The rich red color of the flower evokes the festive color of Christmas.
The two circular self-adhesive stamps below were issued in April of this year. I received these two stamps separately from two Finnish postcrossers.
Below is what the dahlia stamp sheet looks like:
Indeed, against a dark background, the dahlias would seem to glow.
Anyway, don't despair because there are indeed glow in the dark Finnish stamps!
