Elegant Dahlias Postage by LorrieM
This is a great stamp for a special occasion like a wedding or anniversary. I photographed a beautiful Dahlia garden at the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco a month ago. I was there just in time to see a large garden of a variety of Dahlias in full colorful bloom.
This stamp has a light lavendar shade with cut-out Dahlias in the foreground. This is a small size showing but it can be customized by you in medium and large size too.
Escapism is the word that comes to mind when I see this beautiful red flowering tree whose official name is Royal Poinciana. The red color of the flowers against the green leaves automatically puts one in a good mood when viewing it! I then transport myself back in time thinking of when I found these beautiful trees while walking along the sidewalks of the City of Honolulu. The deep red of the blooms next to the Rainbow and Gold Shower trees made a magnificent landscape. Some of these trees are located over by Waikiki Beach also. They dotted the park lawns like giant red umbrellas majestically giving us shelter when a sudden misty shower came along.
These trees are also located in other warmer parts of our country like Florida and Southern California, to name a few. But Hawaii is the first place I’ve ever seen them and I will always think of those tropical islands when I look at this picture. Together, with other colorful flowering trees in the islands, they made a stunning picture!
Along the northshore of Maui are these rock sculpture-like formations. There are hundreds of them along one area of the western coastline of Maui. It reminds me of a Zen Garden.
