The Bermuda Philatelic Bureau of the Bermuda Post Office announced the release of a series of five stamps: Bermuda In Bloom Part 1.
Bermuda's visitors and residents alike are sure to agree that the striking beauty and abundance of Bermuda's floras make up a large part of the Island's charm and tranquility. The Bermuda Post Office is proud to issue this first set, in a series of three, of five stamps in appreciation of Bermuda in Bloom.
The sub-tropical climate is perfect for many different species of plants and while Bermuda can boast only a few endemic plants of its own, quite a number are native, and many hundreds have been introduced deliberately and accidently from other countries. A variety of trees, shrubs and vines have been selected for this series, all of which can be seen in numerous private and public gardens, or along Bermuda's roads and coast.
The stamps are available in values of 0.05c (Yellow Allamanda), 0.10c (Frangipani), 0.25c (Bougainvillea), 0.35c (Coral Tree), and $10.00 (Skyflower). Official First Day covers with liner $12.00.
