On Wednesday, July 1, Canada will be 153 years old. That is, it will be the 153rd anniversary since the Constitution Act was signed in 1867. Such a young country!! Our national flag is the red and white maple leaf, of course – seen above in a photo I took at the 2016 Trenton Air Show. I wanted to do my bit, celebrating virtually this year instead of with the usual parades and concerts, with a red and white vase for the week. Better planning should have been done, I’m afraid, because thanks to insects and chipmunks, I have but one red flower in bloom at the moment – and it it was not even planned!
Happy Birthday Canada! And many thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting IAVOM and giving gardeners around the world an opportunity to share their flower designs.
