Funny this thread should crop up (pun intended) again. Here are some Bulgarian pears I just came across.

The mushroom will disappear as soon as I get another yellow fruit to replace it. None of those stamps are attractive enough to be added to the 1st group, so I just bunched the yellow together (and green, etc.); am still assembling the page. All pages are a work in progress. Every stamp can and will be replaced when a prettier stamp appears.
