Welcome to Villa Emilia (My Woodland Garden), a photography blog with a slant towards gardening and nature. An amateur gardener and photographer, I hope to share beautiful moments with you through pictures. Let me know if you like them!

Thank you for your visit.

Finnish floral stamps, part 2

Hei! Tässä tulee toinen erä suomalaisia kukkapostimerkkejä. Huomennahan ilmestyy muuten uusia merkkejä. Kahden kauneimman kuvat ovat tämän postauksen lopussa. :)

Mukavaa loppuviikkoa ja ihanaa viikonloppua!

Hello all! This is the second (and the last) one of my posts about Finnish flower and garden stamps. More Finnish stamps can be seen here and some German stamps here

Below there are two new stamps (they will be issued tomorrow). If you are interested in (Finnish) stamps, you can find more information in the Posti Online shop.

Have a wonderful weekend!
