Earlier this month the U.S. Postal Service continued its tradition of issuing beautiful flower stamps with the release of Vintage Seed Packets. These ten stamps feature photographs of antique seed packets (printed between 1910 and 1920), cropped to highlight their beautiful floral detail.
We really love these stamps, and to spread the joy we’ve decided to give away eight actual vintage seed packets. We’ve already given away one, but there are still seven more chances for you to win. Today’s prize is an aster seed packet.
The aster is considered the queen of all fall flowers. For beauty and variety of form and color it is unrivalled, and of all flowers is best adapted to win the admiration of all lovers of floral beauty.
To win the packet, all you have to do is answer one question: The aster is the birth flower for which month?
Email your answer, along with your name and address, to uspsstamps [at] gmail [dot] com. One winner will be selected at random. The deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. EDT, Friday, May 3. (NOTE: The aster seed packet is empty; no seeds are included.)
If you don’t win this time, you still have six more chances to win. Check back next week for another seed packet giveaway.
The Vintage Seed Packets stamps are Forever® stamps. (Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce rate.) Find them in your neighborhood Post Office, or order them online today.
Congratulations to Leslie Bryant, the lucky winner of the vintage aster seed packet. Check back later this week for another chance to win.
