Have you ever seen inspiration growing?
Take a look!
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Climbing Roses blooming by our back door were photographed today. They provided the inspiration for the watercolour you will find under FLORALS. (The original is still available.)
As mentioned in the write-up about this painting, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, known as “the great conciliator,” became Prime Minister of Canada in 1896, and served for 15 years.
One of the two universities in the twin cities of Kitchener-Waterloo where I live is named after him: Wilfrid Laurier University, a.k.a. WLU.
