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.
The second and the last photos are my favourites this time, William. :)ReplyDelete
Lots of lovely lavender flowers! I'll bet they smell nice.ReplyDelete
Lilacs are wonderful flowers, and now it's their time. When I walk past them, the air fills with the wonderful smell.ReplyDelete

Whenever you show the lilacs William I have a notion to plant them in my garden.. must investigate and see if they grow well here!ReplyDelete
The close up and the church are my favourites.ReplyDelete
The smell of lilacs... it's spring to me. "It's Gold, Jerry. Gold!"ReplyDelete
Nice to see these blossoms. Overhere all the blossoms have gone meanwhile.ReplyDelete

Lovely blossoms - wow William you commented on my latest post before I'd finished the final editing!ReplyDelete
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 :)ReplyDelete
EXACTLY what I was going to say!Delete
You are sharing Ontario's treasures!ReplyDelete
