The National War Memorial near Parliament Hill is also a key spot for tulips, which can be found ringing the perimeter of the monument.
That deep purple is usually found in display here each year, along with one or two other colours.
The Memorial, called The Response, has soldiers as sentries by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This tradition will continue this year into November.
This weekend is Doors Open here in Ottawa, so I don't quite know how much I'll be around. I will no doubt be playing catch up after the weekend.
