I start today with this view of a spot further along the path at MosaiCanada, with a topiary we'll look at in days to come. The Ottawa shoreline can be seen in the distance.
The trail continues from where we left off yesterday to this next sculpture. The Canadian Horse represents New Brunswick, and features three horses. Horses first came into Canada in 1609 in what was called Acadia. Time in eastern North America developed a distinctive breed that today carries the national name.
The Lobster Fisherman represents Nova Scotia with its long history of the fishery industry. The fisherman topiary is surrounded by waves of flowers.
Quebec's designated topiary is Three Ships From France. Cartier's voyages from France in the 16th century inspired this one, which features a trio of ships amid the deluge of flowers, with the ships themselves being a living sculpture.
The Niagara Gateway represents Ontario. Five figures in all are emerging from the flowers, reflecting the diversity of the people of the province and its water influenced landscapes.
