Maple leaf / カエデの赤

14 May 1964, Canada
‘Floral Emblem Series’
design: Harvey Thomas Prosser

The Maple leaf is the queen of autumn colour for me and of course, the Canadian national symbol as shown on their flag.  Even a small Maple tree shows its existence very strongly in this season.

This stamp allows me to imagine the chilly and fresh air of the late autumn in Canada.  Beautifully simple.

隣家の庭先や道の脇の木立でひときわ赤い色を放っているカエデ(メープル)の木を見るにつけ、カナダの国旗にも描かれているメープルは秋の色の女王だなぁ、と思います。日本の秋の山を彩るもみじもカエデの仲間ですね。

凛とした晩秋の空気を感じさせてくれる切手。これ以上なにも必要ないシンプルさで大好きな一枚です。
