Tulips And Royalty

Moving along the path, more tulip beds were in full bloom.


That included this raised circle of tulips I mentioned earlier in the series, with the series of panels about the history of the Tulip Festival along one side. You can see people looking at those panels on the far side of the circle.


There were also some of the large tulip sculptures in the park, and a panel series about Canada and the Netherlands which I showed you last year. There was a new panel among them, which I've included below.

  11. There's just no end of tulips in Ottawa. We don't have large tulip beds here. Now the sculptures are a little gaudy in this setting. I like to see them in a downtown setting. Fussy! Just me!

  24. Wonderful shots of the tulips again. I think, Canada has as least as much tulips as the Netherlands.
    Nice to see there's a panel of our king Willy and his wife as well. :-)
