San Diego Local Post issues Medinilla magnifica stamp
I wrote last week about a couple of the newest stamps from San Diego Local Post, and I have one more to share that was waiting on me the last time I checked my post office box. The 60¢ stamp picturing Medinilla magnifica was issued on World Local Post Day, January 30, 2023.
Medinilla magnifica or showy medinilla is a flowering plant found in the Philippines. It can reach heights of up to about 10 feet tall.
San Diego Local Post is part of the Philippine Stamp Collectors’ Society’s Local Post network, which explains the choice of the flower. Local flora and fauna (such as Medinilla magnifica) were the official topic for this year’s World Local Post Day.
