Orchids Cover From Canada!!

Once again many thanks to Bryon Peterson for this awesome cover, this time posted from White Rock, Canada!! 
Renowned for kilometers of wide sandy beaches, quaint restaurants, art galleries and spectacular sunsets, White Rock has been a holiday destination for decades. I am sure Bryon must had an enjoyable time there! I would absolutely love to visit this lovely place one day!
Back to philately, issued on 11 Jan 2010, the beautiful miniature sheet depicts four Orchid flowers which are native to Canada. They are Striped Coralroot (P - Permanent stamp for Domestic Posting, currently at 57c), Giant Helleborine (C$1.00 for Large Letter), Rose Pogonia (C$1.22 for U.S. Posting) and Grass Pink (C$1.70 for International Posting) respectively.
