The 2011 Garden of Love issuance—ten different first-class stamps depicting a colorful mosaic of flora and fauna in a garden setting—is a continuation of the Love series, begun in 1973. Intended for use on Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day cards, these stamps will add beauty to any expression of love and affection. The word “Love” sits atop each stamp.Garden of Love depicts the abundance of life, its generosity, whose spirit is to be shared by all its creatures. Love’s definition is broader than romantic love. The Garden of Love stamps are being issued as Forever stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate.
