Colonel By Among The Tulip Beds

Here in Major's Hill Park, the statue of Colonel John By is now surrounded by tulips. Check here for what it looked like in the fall.


The tulips in this particular bed are a mix of yellows and reds.


They lead back in a line, ending here. The statue can be seen at the end, looking out at Parliament Hill.


Back at the south end of the Glebe, the shore of this pond I last showed you earlier in the month has a bed of yellow and red tulips as well. It makes for a pleasant photo opportunity with the water in the background.

  6. The colors are incredible. I've decided, after seeing your tulip photos, that when I die and when my statue is made and placed in downtown Ocala I want it surrounded by tulips.

    @Sharon: indeed. Some of them have faded and dropped their petals, but others are still doing well, which is a surprise, because by now, usually, the season would be over.

  28. Hello! I am the Publisher of journal Le Tour based in the Eastern Townships in Québec and I am looking for a picture to illustrate a story on the tulips on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Would you give me the permission to use one of your beautiful pictures?
