7/20/2017 From Harriett Thought the ladies might like to watch out for two new stamp collections that will be out in August:

"Flowers From the Garden"-inspired by 17th and 18th century Dutch and Flemish floral still life paintings. Issue date: August 16, 2017

and

"Protect Pollinators" - several different ones of Monarchs and the western honeybee. Issue Date: August 3, 2017

If you have never visited the Glass Flower collection at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, you should go if you are in Boston. Just recently redone, this section of the museum displays glass flowers made in 1893.
