Sunday Stamps from Mexico

I've recently discovered Sunday Stamps on Viridian's Postcard blog and thought it was time I contributed.

Back in the 1970s some friends of ours went to work in Mexico so I began to accumulate some stamps from there - no such thing as email then. On one trip home they gave me a present, a whole sheet of stamps showing cacti or succulents and dated 1977-1978.

That's a beautiful sheet. I noticed the cross and think those are actually Christmas seals.

I did not know there were that many succulents out there in the desert. Shows you how much there is to learn! Thank you for joining this meme - glad to see you.

I don't think I have ever received mail from Mexico. The stamps are great. I just posted a stamp from Swaziland on my Creative Zone post.

How awesome! I am a true desert creature - I love cacti more than any other plant.

Those are absolutely gorgeous! I am constantly fascinated by cacti - real ones, not the little things in pots that always seem to die on me.

Thanks for your kind comments. I shall have to plan for next week. Welcome to my new followers too.

Thanks for showcasing this sheet! Now I'm tempted to get it and find matching postcards, to create a set of maximum cards! :)
