Earlier this year Canadian stamps featured Day lilies.

We have stamps with various bonsai on them. It was the only one they had with any kind of plant on it, but it is a tiny rural post office.
I didn't know you had that hobby, Dinu--I've always enjoyed your photography, though. You sure have a lot of pretty stamps. Thanks for sharing this with us!

KyWoods, I used to collect coins also. Now both Philately and Numismatics have become stagnant. I too have lost the enthusiasm for them, because of changing times, interests and activities, esp. among the new generation. I'm really at a loss thinking about what I'd do with esp. the stamp collection.

I've just posted this picture on my facebook wall.

Nice! I just found my son's coin collection when I moved this past week. He still collects them sometimes, but not as much as he did when he was younger.

There are more 'attractive distractions' for the newer generations as I told and they are really succumbing to them. Even Shortwave Radio listening was a very popular hobby and there are/were many clubs with enthusiastic members. But I don't know as of now as many radio stations have gone online with the advent of internet. They also had to cut down costs and divert.
