Canada's Newest Flower
On July 1st 2017, Canada will celebrate it's 150th birthday. In recognition of this, a brand new Tulip has been designed for the celebration. It's the new - Canadian Maple Leaf - Tulip. Some, or most, were probably hoping for the new - Toronto Maple Leafs instead. However, it looks like their streak just might continue for a little while yet. So in the meantime, Canada's newest member to Tulip family is bursting from the ground throughout the National Capital Region.
These are a few - up-close-and-personal - macro photographs of the newest Canadian Flower. And one photograph that embodies the many faces of diversity, which makes this Country so great!
