I was over in Commissioners Park by Dow's Lake some days ago to photograph tulips- most of which weren't showing, though you can see the beds in the backgrounds of these shots.
There is a memorial set aside, with trees that were planted here after the bombing of Air India Flight 182 in 1985. Most of the passengers were Canadian citizens of Indian descent- the tragedy was the worst mass murder in Canadian history and the worst airline related terrorism incident before the events of 9/11. The names of the 329 passengers and crew are inscribed on a plaque here in the park.
Something more uplifting- this tree was blossoming in front of a house in Centretown last week. Anyone know it by the blossoms? They're very rare here.
