After a heavy snowfall, there are still bright yellowish flowers on the white snow. Such a scene symbolizes the vigor of life and the infinite hope when facing difficulties.

Mountain Flora Forever Stamp (March 14)

This set of forever stamps pays tribute to the beauty of Montain Flowers: an orange-red wood lily, a purple pasqueflower, a bright yellow alpine buttercup and a dark pink Woods’ rose.

 Mountain flowers are not the same as flowers kept in greenhouses, they grow and bloom in the wild and endure the wind and rain of the wild. In spite of this, they still succeed in blooming their beauty. Because of this, mountain flowers are often thought of as a symbol of tenacity, perseverance, and vitality. I think these four stamps are also intended to convey the same meaning.

 If you have a perseverant, independent friend, you might stick a stamp from this series on your mail, and maybe he will feel something similar from these Mountain Flora forever stamps.

Set against the white background, the tulips appear even more colorful and beautiful. This stamp is often used for wedding invitations, party invitations, and other scenarios.

Compared the themes of US postal forever stamps 2022 and US postal stamps 2021, although they are different -Animal and Flowers. But in general, flowers and animals represent vitality.

Whether it is a walking animal or a blooming flower, they are all parts of nature and are all part of life. Perhaps in this way USPS is also calling on everyone to be more active and energetic in facing a new life.
