Sunday, July 1, is Canada Day.
It is 145 years since Confederation when the leaders
of the time led our country to be a nation.
While under British rule our flag was the Union Jack.
After Confederation it was the Red Ensign.
In 1965 Canada adopted the Maple Leaf as it's flag.
A flag that is easily distinguished and well known all
over the world.
I have had this flag for years but never had a small pole
or a front porch to hang it from.
I decided to hang it from our beautiful maple tree.
I even bought some smaller ones to stick in some spots on the
I think Canadians are becoming more patriotic the past few
This week on the front deck. Notice how large the hosta is this year compared to my header photo.
We will most likely go to the city to take in the festivities.
