It seems appropriate to use that Dutch word today; afscheid means goodbye. All good things must come to an end, and so we come to the last of our tulip shots for the year. A count of the posts brings me up to nearly three weeks worth of these posts. The tulip beds on Parliament Hill were beautiful this year. I paid visits on more than one occasion.
We have ourselves another stray yellow hiding out on the lam among other tulips.
Beyond the main tulip beds, on either side of the base of the Peace Tower are two smaller tulip beds. This is the east one.
And this is the west side, offering a view of the side arch looking into the main entrance.
I leave off with a final shot of tulips and the Peace Tower. It requires getting really low down to the ground to get this shot in. I hope you've enjoyed this tour of the tulips here, and I look forward to next year, when they'll be back once again to enchant us.
