Lanesboro Postmaster, Robin Hobbs (left), recently presented Vinka Lemut (right) with a beautifully framed booklet of the 2004 Love Garden Bouquet stamp. Anyone passing through Lanesboro in recent years has surely been delighted and amazed at the sight of Vinkas garden. Its filled with hundreds of flowers that put on an ever-changing display of color and beauty. Friends and neighbors have benefited from her generosity, as she is quick to share plants and seeds. Vinka can often be seen in her straw hat and garden gloves, carrying a freshly cut bouquet to the home of an unsuspecting neighbor. If youve ever been in the Lanesboro post office and noticed a bouquet of flowers on the desk, chances are they came from Vinka.
The Love Garden Bouquet stamp is most often used to mail bridal shower and wedding invitations, but it seemed like a fitting way to give a neighbor a "bouquet" of her own.
