Flowers From Shoes

This is a close-up of the window that was below yesterday's sign at the Bata Shoe Museum. Their window is showing the Provincial Floral Emblems of Canada made up with coloured sneakers and these three flowers are from our northern areas. On the right is the emblem of Nunavut, the Purple Saxifrage which is the first flower of spring in the Arctic. The middle one is the emblem of the Northwestern Territories, the Mountain Avens a part of the rose family. To the farthest left is the emblem of Yukon, the Fireweed which flowers in the Arctic from July through September. I'll show you a couple more tomorrow.

What a clever display. It looks like they went to a lot of trouble to represent Canada in their display.

Very cool and creative. I remember fireweed from my time in Alaska. It's very pretty.

I'm beginning to think the mushroom is the emblem of the city where I live.

That's very clever, especially as it represents provincial floral emblems.
