Today I return to the National War Memorial with shots taken a few days ago on an overcast day. The Memorial occupies the heart of Confederation Square, surrounded by other landmarks. It was dedicated by King George VI in 1939, months before the outbreak of the Second World War. Meant to pay homage to the dead of the First World War, it has been rededicated since then to include World War Two, Korea, Afghanistan, the South African War, and Canadian military service in general.
This view from the southeast includes some of the summer flowers. There were groundskeepers around doing some routine maintenance around the back of the Memorial, hence the fencing you'll see in some of these shots.

One day I photographed these bushes outside Knox Presbyterian Church downtown. We had these on the property when I was growing up, and we called them snowball bushes.
These were at McPhail Baptist Church close to home for me, taken the following day.
Further along I passed through Richmond Landing on my way to the bridge. The landscaping in this upper portion of the landing has been redesigned in recent years, so the plants and flowers on the slope are new.
This water feature is on one of the terraces. Provincial and territorial flowers are engraved on the wall in the background.
And a couple of blocks away, I took this shot of snowball bushes outside a hotel.
