Iceland Wildflowers - Sunday Stamps

In the 1960s Iceland issued a set of wildflower stamps. A simple design but they are quite effective even if I can't name all the flowers.

However I had more success with the next lot.

Even I can recognise the clover and the dandelion. 

This year has been a particularly good year for the dandelion on our roadside verges. I'm less enamoured with the huge ones growing in our flower beds.

I like this design for wildflowers, simple yet elegant.

and I saw the first dandelions yesterday - I guess spring has finally arrived!

Hi Bob .. they are lovely looking stamps .. despite the dandelion -makes good wine though, for some? I think I'd rather have the grape variety ...

Cheers and hope you're not blown away ... Hilary

Yes they are such a pretty design, I like the borders as well. Its always a sign that the flowering season is well underway when the verges are covered with dandelions, if only they would stay there.

I dug up a bunch of dandelions from the lawn yesterday.

Maybe it's a simple design, but I found great beauty on the stamps you have chosen this week...

i find this set gorgeous, sure they are simple in design but maybe thats exactly why they're appealing..!

Very attractive stamps.

I gather it's windy in the UK.

Such a great set of Icelandic stamps! Love them!

We've had some dandelions in the backyard for a while now...create a really lovely atmosphere now in spring :)

a pretty set, yes we have plenty of dandelions too, the irony being that when as a child I had rabbits, the dandelions didn't grow in our garden.

I'd say the top row is campanula, daisy, thrift but I could be horribly wrong. I had a Canadian visitor at the weekend who was exclaiming over the lovely daisies in all the local gardens. But she had plenty of dandelions!
