Bloom 60c Se-tenant

On May 22nd, 2014, An Post issue two new stamps in honour of Bloom, one of Ireland’s largest outdoor gardening events.

Every year, Ireland’s largest gardening, food and family event, takes place in Dublin’s Phoenix Park. Bloom is organised by Bord Bia, the food board, and this year is being held from May 29th to June 2nd.

Some of the most interesting, and popular, exhibitions at Bloom are the garden competitions. Every year professional and gifted amateur garden designers compete to win the gold medal using not much room but plenty of creativity and imagination. Over the years Bloom have seen water features, exotic plants, hard landscaping and various different themes used by Irish and international garden designers in the competition.

Last year was Blooms 7th year and more than 110,000 visitors passed through the gates to explore over 70 acres of exhibitions, stands and events. The Floral Marquee, for example, showcased the very best of plant and floral nurseries in Ireland and was packed with a wonderful selection of floral delights, plants and flowers for sale. Large displays from over 40 of Ireland’s top nurseries and florists delighted and inspired visitors with the scents of summer.

Bloom is a big event, not just in Dublin or for those interested in gardening, but it attracts people from all over Ireland who enjoy the outdoors and great food and these stamps celebrate this great annual Irish event.

Both stamps were designed by Atelier David Smith. One stamp portrays a detail from a silver medal winning championship garden, while the other stamp shows a lady holding freshly grown garden produce.
