Canada Post’s new lilac stamps signal the (hoped for) end of winter

Following on the successful Daffodil stamp issue of 2005 and Canadian Gardens stamps of 2006, Canada Post will issue on March 1 two domestic rate stamps featuring the lilac, that wonderfully fragrant harbinger of spring.

According to Montreal designer Isabelle Toussaint, the challenge of photographing the lilacs was to create a framing and colour that would complement the white and mauve lilacs and give a lush feeling of spring. She achieved this with a green and purple spring palette that emphasizes the natural tones of the flowers. Ms. Toussaint previously designed the refreshingly translucent Daffodil stamps that were issued in March 2006, and the Pets stamps issued in October 2005 to mark that year's Stamp Collecting month.
