What I Loved About the Olympics

Those green bouquets given to all the winning athletes
                                          (you can read about them here)


The fabulous nubby hand-knit Aritzia sweaters worn by the flower bearers


The Moscow State Chamber Choir singing the Russian national anthem at the closing ceremony

 Canada . . . such an amazing country . . .


However, I'm not so sure about those dancing maple leaves in the red plaid kilts . . .

Hi Sarah, I am so glad you posted a picture of those bouquets. I was really wanting to see a close up of them. Every time they gave them out,I strained my eyes to try to see just what they were. Very pretty and very different. Hope you're surviving all this snow! hugs,Kim
