When the corn is as high as an elephant's eye, you know it's time for Canada Day! Or it was. I guess. I read about it on Twitter. They take it pretty seriously. As an American, I don't have to care. I'm exempt from caring. But I still do. They had Beaver Wars! Ha. Gotta love em. Canadians, I mean. And they're easy to love, at least the ones I've met. I've been to Toronto a couple of times and really enjoyed it. But that was a long time ago. They've probably moved it since then.
In honor of Canada Day, here is a lovely old print that depicts a natural treasure our two countries share. And just in case there are any other beloved national holidays taking place this weekend, here's a Maxfield Parrish illustration of a couple kids with flags.
