Happy 150, Canada!

Today Canada celebrates its 150th birthday.

Like the vast majority of you, I love my country. Yes, we have problems with poverty, racism and immigration, how we treat our Native peoples, and liberals vs. conservatives. We fight about language, with one province regularly threatening to succeed over it. But, overall, it is a really great place to live. Generally speaking we are a tolerant and inclusive bunch, fairly polite, and as proud as possible to be Canadian.

I will admit that I’m not the most patriotic person in the world. But, this year I did plant my front garden with all kinds of red and white flowers, and there are little Canadian flags in all my flower pots. I’ve also stitched a few Canadian-themed designs over the years, and I thought I would share a few of them with you today.

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians! And a happy Saturday to everyone else. 😉
