Friday Finds

Starts with  R

The first will be the same, except we’ll work our way through the alphabet. The second and third will be different each time.
Hosted by Friday Finds and this is V4 or round 4!!!

Also playing along at ABC Wednesday

Eh to Zed

For this round of the alphabet I am going to celebrate Canada's 150 birthday by showcasing towns across the county.
We'll be criss-crossing across the country, from the Atlantic coast of the Maritime provinces of Nova Scota, New Brunswick and PEI to Ontario then to Alberta back to Ontario and into Quebec and then way out west to the Pacific coast in British Columbia. We also stop in Manitoba, Saskatchewan. We covered 9 of the 10 provinces.

Starts with R

Regina - Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll, wife of the Duke of Argyll, who was then the Governor General of Canada, named the new community Regina (Latin for queen), after her mother, the Queen. giving rise to frequent use of the sobriquet Queen City.
Our longest-reigning monarch visited province in 1959, 1973, 1978, 1987, 2005.

As princess Elizabeth made her first visit to Canada with Prince Philip.

Sunday's sunset



  1. Hi Jackie, geography and history have never been my strong topics, so I had no idea that Canada is only 150 years old! I hope I understood that correctly and am not embarrassing myself? The Queen Elizabeth rose is a very pretty colour as is the sunset. I was gping to say no food today? But I suppose veg counts!

    Thank you for linking up with the 'MMBC.


  2. She certainly has been across the pond many times, but I think those days are now over.

  3. Those bunches of beets look scrumptious - I do love them roasted. I think I have been to Regina but only once, so it's not that familiar to me, so interesting to read about.

  4. Our queen has travelled much and is still going strong, thank goodness. Love the sunset image. Have a great week ahead.
