We spent Canada Day with this girls one year. That was my favourite. Canada is 155 years young. There are many Indigenous People who aren't celebrating. The government did such harm. I hope reconciliation continues. Out of respect for Indigenous People and the Sixties Scoop, many of us reflect on the past, the present, and the future.

It's Canada Day!
This is my favourite flag. This beautiful flag was designed by the late Curtis Wilson, who lived in Campbell River, B.C. He died of a heart attack. Curtis "Mulidzas" Wilson (1980-2019)
I don't like fireworks, and maybe tonight's rain will dissuade them. We've some US cottagers and they tend to extend the celebrations.
In the meantime, I shall enjoy the garden. The season is so short!
The Bugloss is visited often by the hummingbird. I haven't, as yet, managed a photo!
The clematis is lovely! I held the camera above my head for this.
The back deck has been safe and fun. The bugs have lessened, and I've enjoyed reading back there. We seem to have two little frogs on a consistent basis. She spent all day there.
The potato beetles have been at the Angel's Trumpet, Brugmansia.
Happy Canada Day to one and all. We've been cleaning and tidying. Jesse and family leave Vancouver today to visit in Ottawa. We anticipate their visiting us on Monday. I've beds to make, tidying to do, and I'm looking forward to welcoming them!
