Colour Of The Garden

Yesterday having had been the 70th anniversary of D-Day, I marked the occasion over at my writer's blog with a film review linked to the day. Check it out when you have a chance.

Carrying on where we left off, springtime blossoms can be found on campus at Carleton University, such as with these first three shots.




These three shots are taken at the Garden Of The Provinces, which I introduced to you just a few days ago. The blossoms of spring were out in full force.

    Have you seen the web traffic from my rant? It's going to raise my page ranking like mad!!! Just like my posts around the G8 in Muskoka!
    Do you think peeps in BC just don't like Ontarians?! My son and daughter-in-law, and my brother live there!

  13. @Birdman: depending on how long ago it was, the campus has changed a lot!

    @Lowell: and they're beautiful blooms.

    @Tex: I love seeing them, however brief they are.

    @Sharon: they're delightful.

    @Greensboro: heavenly indeed.

    @Jennifer: it's much too short. I took a look... nice to see they singled me out for derision. I think I'll just have to make a point of not visiting Surrey in the future.
