Flowers, flowers and more flowers

It’s no surprise that the United States Postal Service is issuing flower stamps this spring. What is surprising is that all three stamp sets that will be issued in April — 16 stamps in all — show flowers.

Obviously the Postal Service believes the public likes pretty stamps.

Our special features this month include an article about worldwide stamps showing hot dogs, a look at Irish writers commemorated on Irish stamps, and news of the first volume of the 2014 Scott Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue.

We also have information about the Adopt a Pet stamps from Canada Post to be issued April 22.

Happy collecting!
