Happy Birthday Canada!


July 1 is Canada's 144th Birthday.


There will be celebrations in towns and cities across the country.


An abstract photo in our national colours, red and white.


This is a special effect called Monet Painting with the camera.

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends!

Happy Independence Day to all my American friends!

Have a happy and safe holiday weekend.

Happy Birthday neighbor. I have just been going over some old posts, rereading comments, and visiting those who have left comments, but not become followers. I have missed out on some really great bloggers by not checking out each and everyone each time I read comments. So I missed your wonderful Garden of Threads. Your photographs are just amazing. Your collages are very artistic and beautiful, and you have an interesting list of other blogs to read through. Sorry I missed you the first time around, but I am here to stay now. Thank you for visiting my blog--way back in January.

That first photo is beautiful! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, Jen. I'm so glad.

We've been having perfect weather and we are relishing every second!
