By The Lake

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.

  25. 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.
