Canada at one hundred fifty years old

Silicon Palms and me have a place in Canada and believe it or not there are palm trees in British Columbia, especially along the Pacific coast of Vancouver Island but even right in the city of Vancouver, occasionally on a rooftop but frequently along the path of the beaches. Naturally palm trees in Vancouver are transplants and most are protected during the winter, wrapped in burlap sheets to survive the cold.

Today was a wonderful day for Canada’s birthday, as it fell on a clear-blue summer Saturday, for the city-dwellers to enjoy the perfect weather for a day at the beach in Vancouver.
