Spring Blossoms

Lilacs, cherry, apple, and other tree blossoms come out around the same time as the tulips, and can be found along many streets. These first two shots are from just up the street near my home.


These blossoms can be found along Bronson Avenue in the Glebe; I liked the finer detail in the second shot.


While these blossoms are alongside Southminster United Church, standing out against the stone and windows of the church.

  30. From looking at your blog photos, one might get the idea that Ottawa is full of flowers and blossoms in the summer, and snow and ice in the winter :)
