Buzzing USPS Protect Pollinators Forever Stamps

Today we are buzzing along with these USPS Protect Pollinators Forever Stamps.
The new stamps arrive on August 03rd in Richmond, Virginia during the APS National Summer Convention StampShow.

There are five designs in the Pane of 20 stamps, and will not be sold individually.

“The U.S. Postal Service pays tribute to the beauty and importance of pollinators with stamps depicting two of our continent’s most iconic: the monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) and the western honeybee (Apis mellifera), each shown industriously pollinating a variety of plants native to North America.”

How nice it is to see so many butterflies with these stamps. I’m including previous blog posts here with Bees! Both of these are from 2015 – The flight of the bumblebee (for time mgmt), and Bee-cause it is August!     Mark your calendar now – August 3rd -awaiting between now and then these stamps and bees will remark how Time Flies! Speaking of which, join me tomorrow for my monthly recap of daily blog posts for June 2017.
