North Saanich, Canada
The Willows Of Grand Pre
Photograph - Photograph
These giant willow trees were planted about 400 years ago by the early French settlers in Nova Scotia, Canada, which was called "Acadia" in those days. Because of the incessant wars between England and France, in September 1755 the English garrison in Acadia deported almost all of the settlers, many of whom ended up in Louisiana, which was then owned by France. Hence the "Cajun" derivation of the Acadian name. The willows form part of the memorial park at the village of Grand Pre, at the eastern end of the Annapolis Valley.
