Mainstays in gardens coast to coast-irises, hyacinths, tulips and daffodils-are featured on stamps to be issued by the U.S. Postal Service at an 11 a.m. ceremony March 15, 2005, at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show.
"The gorgeous Spring Flowers stamps, and the millions of flowers in the Chicago Flower and Garden Show, remind us that spring is on the way-winter is almost over," said Jo Ann Feindt, Area Vice President, Great Lakes Area, for the U.S. Postal Service, who will dedicate the stamps. "The Postal Service is delighted to commemorate the beauty and bright promise of spring through these new stamps."
