Our City in a Garden - Singapore

Wong Wee Leong sent me this lovely FDC of the latest "Our city in a garden" issue from Singapore. Four stamps and a collectors sheet were issued on 13 July 2013. On the cover are the four stamps.

The four designs on the stamps portray Singapore's vibrant urban landscape nestled within a thriving garden with native plants and wildlife. To commemorate 50 years of greening Singapore, the self-adhesive 1st local stamps from this series come affixed with seeds of the Portulaca grandiflora for everyone to plant. The creeper is a common sight in Singapore in roadside plantings, rooftop gardens, on flowerbeds and as ornamental displays in pots.
