W-a-t-e-r L-i-l-i-e-s Spell Spring

The Postal Service marked the start of spring March 20 by dedicating four Water Lilies stamps at a philatelic show in Cleveland.
In anticipation of strong consumer demand, USPS is printing a half-billion of the colorful stamps instead of 20 million to 40 million, the usual run for new stamps.
The stamps depict four classic garden water lilies — aquatic herbs that live in both temperate and tropical climates around the world. The close-up images were shot by Cindy Dyer, who offers garden photography tips on her website.
