Oh Canada! My Canada!

I was going to write a post about how much I love my country, Canada, on this her 144th birthday. But they say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I have at least a thousand pictures, and so I shall let some of them do the talking. Happy Birthday, Canada! You are truly a beautiful place to live!

Happy Canada Day, everyone!

Happy Canada Day to you, Jean! Your eye and love for our land are beautifully apparent in these stunning photos. And, the larger format really works well to illustrate why you were drawn to these particular ones of the many you have taken. This post was honestly a feast for the eyes!

Lovely! It's hard to pick favorites, but the soft one of Sadie (?) with her back to the camera really felt sweet.
Happy Canada Day to you and all your critters!

Jean said...

Thanks, Carol and EvenSong. I had fun going through my photos and picking just a few of my favourites.
Evensong, it's funny you mention that one of Sadie in particular. It was taken when we lived on the farm in Mission. It was one of those days when I took a bunch of photos and I guess I never went back through them properly. I was delighted to see it yesterday while going through some old saved files on a CD. I absolutely love it, and I'm going to get it enlarged and framed.

I can't pick a favorite as they all are outstanding. I am partial to the photo of your dog sitting with her back to you. And the first one. And, and, and I could go on! :))

Great job Jean.

Happy Canada Day!
Gorgeous, breathtaking photos!
I am glad I found your wonderful blog through my dear friend Georgia.

Lisa, I don't have a flicker account. I sometimes use photobucket, but usually just post here on the blog as I'm not very computer savvy. I don't even do facebook!

Georgia's typist, if you ever make the trip, you're welcome to stay here! Of course, GLP will have to go back to, which won't make me very popular with her!

Sonia, welcome to my blog! (and thanks Georgia for steering your friends here!)
