The Garden of the Provinces can be found a short walk west of Parliament Hill, and tulips can be found in the flowerbeds during the festival. In this first shot, we're looking down towards the headquarters of Library and Archives Canada along Wellington Street. This is the Canadian version of what Americans know as the Library of Congress. The building at the right is a governmental building- Veterans Affairs, if I'm not mistaken.
From this view, St. Peter's Lutheran Church lingers in the background. It's one of two churches on what is referred to as Cathedral Hill.
The other is Christchurch Anglican. I hope to be paying a return visit to these two churches today for Doors Open.
So many tulips! :)ReplyDelete
