Oh Canada We Stand On Guard For Thee

 

Happy-Canada-Day-LR

 

On July 1 of each year we celebrate the birth of a nation.   Canada began as a country 144 years ago.   There will be fireworks and parades and backyard barbeques to mark the momentous occasion.    Our neighbours to the south in the United States of America will celebrate the 4th of July in much the same way.   Have you put out your flag yet?   I hope you have a wonderful weekend.   Save me a burger and some potatoe salad.   Valerie

 

I will be joining Laura for Macro Friday.    The Maple Leaf is a symbol of Canada and is on our flag.   I used Pioneer Woman’s Heartland for this photo.

Nice photo and I love the way you processed it! Have a great weekend. Sounds like it'll be lots of fun! By the way, your link wasn't working for me at macro friday. I don't know if it's just me but I thought you might want to check it to be sure.
