Jacques Cartier Park on the shore of the Ottawa River in Gatineau had red and white tulips in the flowerbeds this year.
Not to mention this stray yellow tulip lurking among the rest.
This shot gives you some perspective of location- the curatorial wing of the Museum of Civilization is in the background.
The park is quite different than when I last showed it to you during Winterlude. Compare these spring shots with the shots here, here, and here. I like the view of the Alexandria Bridge from this park, and Parliament Hill beyond it.
At Dow's Lake, the last of the panels.
A gorgeous display to brighten any city.ReplyDelete
I hope that yellow one feels like a star and not like the odd one out! :-)ReplyDelete
As is said, there's one in every crowd.ReplyDelete
i like this redReplyDelete
Nothing like a field of red and white! :)ReplyDelete
Absolutely love your tulip posts, thank you William! A magnificent display of the yellow and white, and that second photo of the single yellow tulip is a beautiful focal point. Delightful photos, all of them.ReplyDelete
There's a story behind that yellow tulip, I'm sure. :-)ReplyDelete
Chrissy: I think so!ReplyDelete
Ciel: it does stand out.
Stuart: there does seem to be.
Bergson: thank you.
Halcyon: it pleases the eye.
Denise: thank you!
The tulips in Ottawa go on forever. Is there a connection to the Netherlands here!ReplyDelete
It seems that with all this tulip beauty, one could call Cartier Park the jewel of Ottawa? :)ReplyDelete
Hard work planting reaps quite a visual reward.ReplyDelete
Now how did that one stray yellow one get in this patch.ReplyDelete
Like chalk and cheese hey William, love both these and winter shots.. J'adore that individual yellow tulip :) These mass plantings are mega spectacular and beautifully shown here and earlier posts.ReplyDelete
the 'dare to be different' ads come to mind again with the yellow one. :)ReplyDelete
What a difference a few weeks can make. I like the yellow loner, standing out in the crowd.ReplyDelete
I've always been partial to the yellow ones, and this one stands out like a queen among her subjects!ReplyDelete
So many and so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Breathtaking colourful fields! Great shots, William.ReplyDelete
@Furry Gnome: a lot of immigrants did come over from the Netherlands during the post war years.ReplyDelete
@Lowell: it is a jewel!
@Birdman: quite true!
@Sharon: I'd like to know!
@Grace: thank you!
@Tex: quite true!
@Judy: it stands out so well.
@Linda: I quite agree.
@Norma: that one does!
@Luis: I'm going to miss showing these off.
@Jose: thank you!
Can't decide which tulip picture in all your posts that I like best! They're all wonderful!ReplyDelete
So beautiful. You're killing me with all these shots. I would love to photograph those flowers.ReplyDelete
I keep repeating myself - Wow!ReplyDelete
I agree with the others about the yellow tulip!ReplyDelete
I've noticed there are often one or two different colored tulips in vast fields like that. That old song, "I gotta be me!" always comes to mind.ReplyDelete
What a spectacular contrast to Winterlude!
Like the red and white waves... guess the yellow one is an interloper.ReplyDelete
Great captures. I love that yellow one!ReplyDelete
'I'll do it my Way' shouts the yellow Tulip. I love it when another color appears. Red and white a magnificent together. Thanks for the tulip shots. MBReplyDelete
@Cheryl: obviously tulips are going to have to figure into my year end favourite shots.ReplyDelete
@Krisztina: it's a pleasure to present them.
@RedPat: that's what a lot of people say!
@VP: it is drawing quite a bit of attention.
@Kay: I did notice some strays in that white band of tulips in the second last shot.
@Linda: but a welcome interloper!
@Marleen: thank you!
@MB: we just need Sinatra to sing that song for the yellow tulip!
Absolutely fabulous. The yellow tulip is probably shouting, "I gotta be me!"ReplyDelete
I wonder which squirrel put it in there. Or if it was missed being removed during a previous year.Delete
Great to see how the colorful tulips changed the park.ReplyDelete
And they do.Delete
Ha! I love it when a yellow tulip gets mixed in with the red!ReplyDelete
I get a smile out of seeing those odd tulips in a bed of different colours.Delete
