Flowers - Sunday Stamps II

I'm beginning to run short of flower stamps to show.

However I could not resist showing this block of four:

USA 5 October 1966
Cherry blossoms and the Jefferson Memorial - appropriate today as the National Cherry Blossom Festival runs from 18 March - April 16th this year.

Can I claim to be a wise old sage for hitting the dates for it?

At least I can show some:

USA 7 April 2011
To pick other flowers today inspect those at the links on Sunday-Stamps- II-118.

It isn't the first time I read it, but I really like the slogan "Plant for a more beautiful America". Those stamps are beautiful, Bob.

The USA stamps block of 4 is lovely but I think I'm partial with that sage stamp! Very nice.

I can see why the 5c stamp was updated and reissued a few years ago.

I like the sage stamp as well - I think this was for the domestic postcard rate.

I have always wanted to see these blossoms in DC
But it is hard to time it exactly - and this year the sudden snow storm killed off quite a few of them.

Yes, fun to see your stamp post again. Enjoy your weekend, Bob.

I would love to see the cherry blossoms, especially in Japan. The stamps are pretty, as is the sage.
