Bermuda in Bloom on cover from capital city Hamilton

This beautiful cover arrived from Bermuda, from capital city Hamilton. This two stamps are from set Bermuda in Bloom, issued on 18.8.2016. On left stamp you can see Lagerstroemia indica , a species in the genus Lagerstroemia in the family Lythraceae, which is native to the Indian Subcontinent (hence the name indica), and also to Southeast Asia, China, Korea and Japan. Planted in full sun or under canopy, the tree is a popular nesting shrub for songbirds and wrens. In the United Kingdom, Lagerstroemia indica has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.

On right side you can see Cassia javanica is a species of tree in the family Fabaceae. Its origin is in Southeast Asia, but it has been extensively grown in tropical areas worldwide as a garden tree owing to its beautiful crimson and pink flower bunches. C. javanica is one of Thailand's Nine Auspicious Trees and is said to bring good luck, ensure continued high rank and afford victory.

Thank you, Holger!
