A Tea To Celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday.

I am having friends for tea
to Celebrate Canada's 150th birthday 
this July 1st. 2017.

Strawberries and Rhubarb are in season here
in Eastern Canada.
I made jam to serve with cookies
and biscuits.

 Expo 67
In 1967,  50 years ago,
Canada's 100th Anniversary
was celebrated in Montreal, Quebec,
inviting countries from around 
the world to this World's Fair
which lasted 6 months.

I was gifted this cup and saucer below,
from an elderly lady I worked for.
Mrs. Bourdages,
 I am so grateful to her.

The Maple Leaf is Canada's emblem. 
representing many species of maple trees
native to Canada.
The maple leaf appears on our flag.

A cup and saucer with Niagara Falls,
 one of Canada's main tourist attractions and 
one of the seven Natural Wonders Of The World, 
situated between the border of 
Canada and United States.

Canada, a country rich in natural resources,
 different cultures and beauty from coast to coast.

Below is a photo I took Thursday at Routhierville, Quebec.
 A wooden covered bridge crossing the Matapedia River, 
a salmon river. 
Built in 1931 in the picturesque Matapedia Valley 
of the Chic-Choc Mountains, 
part of the Appalachian range.

A quick stop, I took this photo

through the greenery. 
It shows only 1/2 of the bridge.

I'm proud to be Canadian 
living in this wonderful Country.
I wish all my Canadian friends a Happy Canada Day.

Thanks for your visit. xo
