Hearts and Flowers - Sunday Stamps

I've no hearts to show for this week's theme so I start with some flowers from the USA.

USA - Flowers 2001
I must say that I am not keen on these four as I would have preferred to see them in a more natural state, the backgrounds make the flower less clear.

So I decided that I would send my love some roses from Scandinavia instead.

Sweden - 1996
It was only when I enlarged them that I realized they were azaleas and not roses at all.

Perhaps I can be luckier with:

Sweden - Four-leafed clover
While I wait for the verdict you may try your luck over at Viridian's Sunday-stamps-109

Hi Bob .. stamp designers I suppose need to be different at time .. as I was scrolling down the 'roses' I was thinking - no! Glad you realised .. the four-leafed clover from Sweden - I wonder why ...

Good to see the variations though - cheers Hilary

I don't remember the flower stamps from the USA at all - and I should. Hmm.
Anyway, thank you for participating.

Yeah, I was wondering that, why 4 leaf clover from Sweden, Ireland maybe? I like the American stamps.

I'm sure your love will be just as pleased with azaleas Bob :)

I would have pegged the Swedish clover stamps for Irish St. Patrick Day stamps.

I like your storyboard :)
I had to look up the Swedish stamp, and came up with 25 years of United Nations, which left me just as confused....
and I agree about the top flowers, the soft, diffused look might be better on a poster.

I got a Service unavailable message so you may or may not already have a comment from me.

Like Marcie, I thought the bottom ones were for St Patrick's Day. All of them are new to me.
