Happy Queen's Day!
Saturday is Queen's Day in the Netherlands. It marks the birthday of the late Queen Juliana, who was forced to live for a time with her children in Canada during the Second World War.
I went to a reception this week to celebrate the unveiling of a new coin:
the Tulip and Ladybug coin
. Did you know that ladybugs shelter in tulips?
I was a bit nervous as it was a small reception with high-level attendance.
I'm sure I was not alone in being moved by the Dutch ambassador's words about the Netherlands people's gratitude for Canada's help all those years ago.
And here is Ada in a new pair of ladybug and flower pajamas :)
