Birds and Flowers -- First Day Issues [Part 10]

Thank you for all the encouraging comments on this series of posts! As of today's post, we've covered 30 of the 50 U. S. States. We are looking forward to asking you to pick an overall favorite when we are done. And we wonder how many of you will pick your own State. :-)

  2. picking a favorite among these will be pretty hard. All the art is top notch. And any bird steals my heart. So, how could I chose one over another. Sigh

  5. Beautiful series, John. My favourite this time is New Hampshire. I have been to New England and I love it there. Even though I haven't been there for quite sometime (over a decade now), I have fond memories of Vermont and New Hampshire.

  8. I just noticed that you were putting on license plate slogans. Now I'll have to go back and find out what I missed. I'm surprised how many times the same bird or flower is used.

  14. These are just wonderful! I am not going to go back to beginning because I suspect that's quite far but I want to enjoy some of these I have missed. Before I go further, I'd like to say thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog...my header photo is on Tumacacori Mission in S AZ near Tubac. Lovely artwork on these! What a great collection!
