Spring Flower Trail

Spring Flower Trail Series

The idea for this series came from a co-worker of mine who is not a boxer, but does understand it. Since Letterboxer’s are about the nicest people around, I decided to give each of you a bouquet of flowers that will last forever. Hope you enjoy the hunt and the stamps.
