stamps: water lilies

Image from:

These beautiful water lilies will grace four new stamps from the U.S. Postal Service®.

Each of the four stamps depicts a close-up of one of four classic garden water lilies. The photographs were shot at midsummer at the Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens in Washington, D.C.

Water lilies are aquatic herbs that live in both temperate and tropical climates around the world; they are found in still freshwater habitats. There are more than 50 species in the water lily family and hundreds of hybrids. 

The Water Lilies stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps in booklet format.
