The Four Seasons of the Year in Cyprus 12.3.2014

The Four Seasons of the Year

"The stamps in this series graphically illustrate the four seasons, as each one occurs in Cyprus and in other countries of the temperate zone.

The €0,22c stamp illustrates winter. It is a period of rainfall, snow and generally bad weather, but also the time of the major holidays of Christmas and New Year.

The €0,43c stamp illustrates spring. The sweetest season of the year. In this season all nature, the trees and the valleys are clothed in their green beauty and the migratory birds 
return once again to their nests. This season is glorified with the Resurrection and the May Day.

The €0,85c stamp illustrates summer. The season that stands out with its fine weather and abundance of fruit. It is the season for reaping, relaxation and holidays when everyone enjoys the beauty of the sea and the mountains.

The €1,71c stamp illustrates autumn. During this season the days gradually shorten, the first rains fall, the fields are ploughed and the schools are once again filled with children's voices."

Thank you Dear Merja for this nice FDC with the four lovely stamps.
