Canada Post welcomes spring with a bouquet of Peonies stamps

On March 3, 2008 Canada Post will issue two domestic rate Peonies stamps; one featuring the showy Elgin Peony and the other the single-cup Coral 'n Gold.

The stamps, designed by Isabelle Toussaint, feature a photo of the peonies before a white background on the stamp, an arrangement that allows the rich colours to stand out. Toussaint photographed the peonies herself: the Elgin at the Ottawa Central Experimental Farm, and the Coral 'n Gold at the Algonquin College Campus of Horticulture. Toussaint has worked on other stamp issues, namely the daffodils, the lilacs and the pet stamps.
