I have shown you this large tree before, during the winter. It stands along the Rideau Canal on the east side of the Glebe.
I was passing by in mid-May while looking for tulip beds when I decided to stop by and take some shots of the tree.
This included a closeup of the bark.
The view of the Canal here is lovely.
This look back at the tree is from the other side of Patterson Creek, which enters the Canal here.
