What a way to begin July! A celebration! A cake! A new word! A watercolour painting! And why not?

OK, Canada is 150 years old this year. It’s Sesquicentennial, for want of a better term. And I’ve decided for my first watercolour for #WorldWatercolorMonth, to create a cake. A red and white cake, based on the Canadian flag, outlined in silver and gold, with a huge 150 as the cherry on top. My cake’s rather lop-sided, but even that is better than one that I could have attempted to bake for real. I’m a terrible cook. You should see the bread I bake… and that is done in a breadmaker! Anyway, I digress.

For Canada Day, July 1st, today, I celebrate Canada!

And of course, the start of a month of watercolour painting!
