There is no mistaking this flower for sure.
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)
Me too, I find the design very modern.I love the aroma of crocuses.
I don't think I saw any crocuses this spring - possibly due to the frost and snow in April?!
Same here. We have a strange spring, autumn-like.I have just seen crocuses during my holidays in Spain, in my Mom's flowerpots!
Thank you for posting!(we were lucky to see lots of crocuses in real last month..)
As I wrote, I've seen them just on flowerpots this year.
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... :-)
I'm sure you will find at least one butterfly ;-)
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...
You're right. It seems the illustration of a botany book.
Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
