This is Victoria Day in Canada, a public holiday, so I'll be a bit scarce today. And it is also the final day of the Tulip Festival, though my shots will be ongoing into June.
Returning to Dow's Lake, I came back late in the afternoon on the 14th of May, with the sun out and shining on the tulips. This first bed is just before the Rideau Canal widens out into the lake, a bed of tulips on the east side of Bronson Avenue.
West of Bronson, the path brings us back into Commissioners Park, where I wasn't the only one this day appreciating the tulips.
Lovely walk through the tulips.ReplyDelete
Oh wow...Commissioner's Park looks like the place of dreams...ReplyDelete
This is where is the Fletcher Wildlife Garden...?.ReplyDelete
Belo e florido jardim.ReplyDelete
Um abraço e boa semana.
It must be nice to take a walk overthere between the tulips.ReplyDelete
Happy Victoria Day. I like the way in photo #6, it is as if the tulips are imitating the clouds!ReplyDelete
That is a huge amount of tulips you have there, more than in the Netherlands I think!ReplyDelete
Happy Victoria Day William.. Looks like it was the perfect day when you took these shots!ReplyDelete
Tiptoe through the tulips...sorry, I couldn't resist!ReplyDelete

@RedPat: it was, and so busy.
@Kate: it is a wonderful time of year.
@SRQ: they are indeed.
Each one of these photos is gorgeous. I wonder, did tulips take a lot of work? If they do, the people who take care of these have excellent skills. No matter what, tell the truth, the hip excellent skills as evidenced by not only the tulips but the grounds. Thanks for viewing and listening to my videos. I start cooking those veggies this evening, before I watch a basketball on my TV. They will go well with my baked chicken. There's no photograph of it because I bought it at a different place.ReplyDelete
Belated Victoria Day celebration wishes to you, William. A friend who lives in Kingston shared some details on the celebrations there as well.ReplyDelete
Nice job! I do love them.ReplyDelete
I like the park full of tulipsReplyDelete
Some very nice houses at the edge of the tulip beds. What a treat it must be to live there.ReplyDelete
@Lynette: they do take a lot of work. They remove the bulbs after they're done blooming, and plant other things here for the summer until replanting takes place in the fall. I have no idea where the bulbs are stored for the coming months, though.ReplyDelete
@Beatrice: thank you!
@Jennifer: so do I.
@Bill: I do too.
@Jack: it would be.
