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.
Wow. Wave after wave of color !ReplyDelete
The tree in the last shot is absolutely gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Those are beautiful blossoms. I hope they smell nice too. :-)ReplyDelete
Very pretty ! Our Lilacs and blossom tree are almost done their blooms now ! Nice photos , Thanks for sharing , Have a good weekend !ReplyDelete
Yes! Color has indeed returned to the land. :-)ReplyDelete
It's springtime in Canada, and the only one who's not happy about it...is William!Delete
Okay, how did that happen?ReplyDelete
@Stuart: it does brighten things up.ReplyDelete
@VP: I think so too.
@Jan: oh they do.
@Country Gal: thank you!
@revrunner: it really has!
@Norma: winter will be back soon enough.
During my college days, I was on this campus, alas in winter to see a basketball game. Not this beauty.ReplyDelete
It is clear that Mother Nature favors your city in the springtime by blessing it with these glorious blooms!ReplyDelete
love the lilacs! sure miss them!ReplyDelete
Oh how I wish I could smell those lilacs.ReplyDelete
Lilacs.... heavenly. I can almost smell perfume floating from the photos!ReplyDelete
My lilacs are done. This season is too short!ReplyDelete
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!
@Birdman: depending on how long ago it was, the campus has changed a lot!ReplyDelete
@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.
Ahhhh....lilacs! You just made my day, William. :)ReplyDelete
I bet the air is full of fragrance.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Goodness, so many gorgeous places to take photos. You must have a ton of portrait photographers where you live.ReplyDelete
I could almost smell the flowers. I loved Norma's comment!ReplyDelete
Oh come on William, you couldn't possibly be anything but happy in spring.. it's just so.... fabulous. The tree in the last shot is probably one of the most beautiful I've seen, I want it in my garden stat :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous signs of spring out there!ReplyDelete
Lilacs are so beautiful...the only thing wrong with them is their blooming season is so short.ReplyDelete
It's so sad that blogs can't convey smells... :-)ReplyDelete
superbe il ne manque que l odeur ;o)ReplyDelete
@Linda: it's a pleasure.ReplyDelete
@Judy: it is!
@Krisztina: there's no shortage of inspiration.
@Cheryl: thank you.
@Grace: at this point it's a bit hard to move!
@Jose: we have a lot of it!
@Kay: all too short.
@Ciel: c'est dommage!
@Le Regard: merci!
I can smell those lilacs!ReplyDelete
Lovely Spring images!ReplyDelete
I think I fall in love in your Ottawa.ReplyDelete
Those lilacs must perfume the whole area!ReplyDelete
they are really beautiful.ReplyDelete
When ever I see photos from spring, I miss springtime which we do not have it here.
The lilacs are so lovely, William.ReplyDelete
I was so sad when our lilac finished. It doesn't last long, does it?ReplyDelete
@RedPat: they're wonderful.ReplyDelete
@Marleen: that they are.
@Mariusz: it can have that effect.
@Jack: some more than others.
@Feyza: our springs can vary each year. Some years it's a very gradual transition, as it has been this year.
@EG: that they are.
@BDP: it doesn't.
