A City in a Garden

I was at the post office last week and saw that a new stamp issue was coming up. It has been 50 years since the start of the campaign to green Singapore. A special stamp issue to commemorate this was released on 13 July 2013. What was special about the stamps is that seeds come with the stamp. See the black dots on the local stamp. Those are the seeds of the Portulaca plant (with pink flowers) which is also shown on the local stamp.

I am going to plant them to see if it will grow.


  1. Sent you a "stamped" email!
    Fox : )

  2. What an absolutely most gorgeous and also creative stamp. I have not seen any prettier... What a great idea for the seeds too.. LOVE it.. Hugs Judy

  3. How lovely. I hope you enjoy many flowers.

  4. What a great idea, good luck with the seeds

  5. What a great idea, as a stamp collector of many many years those are some of the prettiest stamps I have seen in a long time. I hope the idea catches on, I think the UK stamps are some of the worse designs in the world we rarely get pretty ones.

  6. Such a nice idea. And the stamps are so cute!
