This weekend is Doors Open in Ottawa. I'll be busy taking pics, and will have them posted, but I'll give myself a few days breathing space with some posts of various subjects before then.
For a brief time each spring, some of the trees and bushes here bloom in vibrant pinks, purples, and whites. Lilacs, cherry trees, and more can be found among them. The shots I have today are all close to home in Old Ottawa South; the closest examples are thirty seconds from my front door. I have more of this to come over the next couple of days.
This last bush is nearly overwhelming the lion sculpture beside it.
