At the Museum of Nature, tulips were also out and about on display in glorious red and yellow.
Returning back to Dow's Lake, this oversized pair of wooden shoes could be found on display. Kids were having fun posing for pictures.
The crowds in the park were quite hectic on this particular day.
In this bed of tulips, we have three types: Orange Angelique (orange), Mount Tacoma (white), and Abigail (purple).
Boy oh boy those sure are pretty. Mount Tacoma huh? Mt. Rainier out thisaway was first named Mt. Tacoma after the Native American name of Tahoma. I'll bet the white Tulip is named after it. I'll say so. MBReplyDelete
It had to be a gigantic work of gardeners at these tulips. It appears from your photos that tulips do not end there.ReplyDelete
Is it really that warm already? Kids in tees? Wow!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous colours, I love the purple ones!
Such gorgeous displays, what a joy to look at!ReplyDelete
Love the giant Dutch wooden clogs. I suppose that's a symbolic tip of the hat to Dutch immigrants, isn't it?
Netherlands themed - or I'm a Dutchman? Lovely photos William. I've been away/busy - quite a bit of catching up to do!ReplyDelete
i wonder if any one can walk in those shoes? awesome yellow. love the blooms. ( :ReplyDelete
I'm still thinking of that poor guy and his tulip planter . . . :-)ReplyDelete
My goodness, the colors and that park are amazing. I like the field with a variety of different tulips. I wonder what the kids do in those big shoes? The people in Ottawa certainly do love their tulips - with good reason!ReplyDelete
I am truly amazed at how many places in Ottawa plant tulips! I'm guessing annuals must be planted in the gardens once the tulips are finished blooming.ReplyDelete
I've never seen such an amazing array of colors...and the wooden shoes are a fun touch!ReplyDelete
@MB: I assumed so the first time I saw the name.ReplyDelete
@Mariusz: some more tulips to come, but we are in the homestretch.
@Ciel: yes it finally warmed up.
@Merisi: that is exactly what it is.
@Mike: thank you!
@Beth: maybe Paul Bunyan?
@Revrunner: poor guy indeed!
@Lowell: they are a wonderful attraction.
@EG: yes, which should happen soon. In a normal year it would probably be done now but the tulips blossomed late.
@Norma: I thought so!
such beautiful color combinations! ha, now those are some big shoes to fill!ReplyDelete
I just cannot believe how many tulips Ottawa has!ReplyDelete
i don't know if i like the solid color flows together or the mixed bag! really lovely both ways!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful parade of flowers William.ReplyDelete
There are some colors here that I've never seen before in tulips.ReplyDelete
I love those wooden shoes!!!ReplyDelete
I wonder how many different types of tulips the got there... Love the big wooden shoes!ReplyDelete
Oh thank you for those pictures of the tulips! Here in Chicago they are already over and I feel that I missed them.ReplyDelete
Wow! So many tulips... and the colors!!!ReplyDelete
Incredible display of flowers. Loved the wooden shoes.ReplyDelete
@Tanya: they really are!ReplyDelete
@Furry Gnome: there's no shortage.
@Luis: thank you.
@Sharon: there's such a variety of them these days.
@Linda: they're not easy to walk in, the regular ones.
@VP: I think there might be anywhere between thirty to fifty types of tulips.
@Annette: you're welcome.
@Judy: thank you.
@Halcyon: I'll miss showing these off!
@Mari: it's a nice touch.
@Krieg: thank you.
That's not possible, William, Ottawa is a tulips heaven!ReplyDelete
Wooden shoes! Great idea!ReplyDelete
Can't believe the variety of colors for the tulips, but red and yellow remain my favorites!
Those oversize shoes are so cute! My grandkids would love to climb all over them.ReplyDelete
more pretty tulipsReplyDelete
Great colors again, William, I specially love your first two photos today.ReplyDelete
That's a lot of people!ReplyDelete
It looks like Holland!ReplyDelete
It is glorious to see these colours. Very soothing to the soul.ReplyDelete
@Karl: there are so many of them here!ReplyDelete
@Cheryl: I think it might be possible to overdose on tulips.
@Lois: I can't recall them being there before.
@Daryl: they are!
@Jan: thank you.
@RedPat: yes, the shots at the lake were taken on Victoria Day.
@Jeroen: it's a wonderful tradition we've picked up from the Dutch!
@Jennifer: they really do that.
I can't get over how stunning each shot is! It's s-o-o-o beautiful at every turn!ReplyDelete
Ha! I'd like to see you tiptoe through the tulips in THOSE shoes!ReplyDelete
Love those HUGE wooden shoes!ReplyDelete
Each color tulip is beautiful on its own, when combined with other colors (like in your photos), they become amazing...ReplyDelete
@Linda: that would cause a disaster!
@EG: I remember trying to walk in normal sized ones. It's not easy!
@Pat: thank you.
