Flowers - Sunday Stamps

I've chosen stamps from Cameroun and Mongolia today for the 'Flowers' theme. I picked the Cameroun stamps because of their shape. The Mongolia stamp? Well I liked it.


Jacob's Ladder or Greek Valerian 

Suggestions for future themes - birds, cars, planes, ships.

More flowers at Viridian's Postcard Blog Sunday Stamps 14 Come and join us.

Wow, amazing flower-on-stamps from Cameroon and Mongolia! Sadly, I have yet to get mine from these countries. Do you buy them from stamp collectors? I swap mine with others. I like your suggestions for future themes as well.

Is that the name of the flower that is in small print--I can't read it.

Sreisaat, my stamp collection has been gathering dust since the 1980s. I have only bought a few stamps since then - UK only. Athing else these days comes on letters and cards. When I saw Viridian start the meme I just joined in. I've only bought the Ireland stamps I posted early from a stall on the local market.

Postcardy, Jacob's Ladder/Greek Valerian is the name of the plant on the Mongolian stamp (polemomium coeruleum).

Bz, thanks for the visit' Iam now following youe A-Z posts.

Bob - I'm sure you have pleny, dust covered or not, for any theme I can think of. Thanks for the suggestions. One theme I want to do is stamps with different shapes - like triangles. Here you have triangles and flowers! and they are beautiful by the way.

Great stamps from some unusual places. The language of flowers seems universal.
