Canada 150

Canada's 150 birthday is next year -- are you planning on making your garden red and white? 

Whether you're going all in or just adding a small patch of our national colours, this might catch your attention: the Netherlands's has created a special commemorative tulip --  The Canada 150. 

Club members were pretty excited about this flower last meeting.  It's certainly pretty with its smooth white petals and "maple leaf" (inspired) red markings.
