Mixed Tulips

I have more tulips from various spots today, including these along properties in Centretown.


These are in Dundonald Park.


This bed is in a garden near my home in Old Ottawa South.


These are in Central Park in the Glebe. I have another from this park that I'll be using for the upcoming theme day on Shadows and Highlights.


These tulips are a short walk away from the park, outside St. Giles Presbyterian Church.

  20. @Tamago: and more yellow to come- there's a bed this year at the lake just filled with them.

    @Denise: there's no shortage of colours.

    @RedPat: they are, yes. They still look good, so they will be fine through the weekend.

    @Cloudia: you're welcome!

    @Halcyon: I expect the series will take about a month before I'm done.

    @Marleen: very much so!

    @Jan: I do as well.
