Birds and Flowers -- First Day Issues [Part 14]

From our collection ... More birds and flowers ... First Day Issues ... Please be sure to see the introduction, information about artists, and stamps, in our March 1, 2015, post. As you have noticed, we are posting the 50 States in alphabetical order, so if you've missed a state you want to see, please check the earlier posts.

South Carolina ... The Palmetto State (comes from the State Tree, the Sabal Palmetto, a type of Palm Tree) ....

South Dakota ... The Mount Rushmore State ...

Tennessee ... The Volunteer State ...

With today's post we've covered 42 of the 50 U. S. States. We will take a break over the next few days and complete the series next week. Thank you for stopping by John's Island.


  1. I love the iris! I think Tennessee's bird and flower are my favorites of these three. I'm really enjoying learning about each state's picks. :-)

  2. This is a great series--so many beautiful birds and flowers. You mentioned that you were looking for a J for Anni's challenge. I was just noticing some large flocks of birds migrating north by our place yesterday, and I would bet at some point in their spring and fall flights, the flocks would form a J--though it would be hard to catch at just the right moment. It will be interesting to see what you do find.

  3. What lovely cards.

  4. Love the Iris and the mockingbird,
    their colours match just perfect :))
    Only 8 left? That was quick!
    Have a beautiful day

  5. These are great! I think I can hop over to that first post on your sidebar...will do so now.

  6. Great series. Have a super weekend.

  7. Enjoying the series and look forward to seeing the rest next week.

  8. They are all lovely, and my favourite this time is the first one. :)
