Krokus


Today's theme for Sunday Stamps-II is Flowers. You have probably seen this one, because Heleen uploaded it (among other beauties) for the Easter topic of Sunday Stamps-II.

I couldn't help but show you how beautiful it looks on this envelope that she sent, after a short conversation about crocuses:

  1. There is no mistaking this flower for sure.

  2. I love the design of this stamp - a classic depiction on a modern-looking stamp. I also am a big fan of crocuses - they are usually the first flowers of the year and add some brightness in the fading days of winter.

    (PS I added the full stamp sheet to my blog today)

    1. Me too, I find the design very modern.
      I love the aroma of crocuses.

  3. I don't think I saw any crocuses this spring - possibly due to the frost and snow in April?!

    1. Same here. We have a strange spring, autumn-like.
      I have just seen crocuses during my holidays in Spain, in my Mom's flowerpots!

    (we were lucky to see lots of crocuses in real last month..)

    1. As I wrote, I've seen them just on flowerpots this year.

  5. Dutch PostNL happens to have issued more stamps on flowers, and on butterflies recently, all made by Dutch illustrator, Janneke Brinkman-Salentijn, a famous nature painter.
    There are also butterflies on the stamps sheet of which I tore out this crocus stamp. I hope to show some butterflies for next Sunday's theme 'Butterflies'. However, I don't have this particular stamp sheet complete anymore... :-)

    1. I'm sure you will find at least one butterfly ;-)

  6. Lovely stamp! Actually I think it may help me now and recognize a crocus in real life, since frankly, I'm terrible in differentiating most of the flowers out there...

    1. You're right. It seems the illustration of a botany book.
