Red and White


White Rose

Red Roses in the Sunset
Fireworks for Canada Day
Red and White prevailed on Canada Day yesterday. Even Duchess Catherine wore a red hat with maple leaves and a white dress. We refrained from painting our faces with flags but did wave one! In the evening we visited Penticton's Rose Garden, peaceful in the evening light; the crowds were elsewhere, eating maple leaf sausages, dancing to the cavorting musicians, and popping balloons. We retired early, but were awoken by the fireworks. Never mind, we found our own in the rose garden....

The photos are beautiful! I love the blue tint on the white rose and the red ones bathed in the evening light.

I love all your photos and am intrigued by the purple ones called fireworks, is that right? I have never seen flowers like that before. They are beautiful.
