One more look at Dow's Lake today. These were the last shots I took during the Tulip Festival, though I'm not quite done with the series. On Victoria Day when these shots were taken, the park was very, very busy.
The raised circular bed of tulips in the park featured the Canada 150 tulip, which is in the foreground, and the Gavota tulip, which is behind it.
I finish the Dow's Lake pics for this year with the bed that includes the Diana tulip.
On a different note, this made the news yesterday. A large sinkhole developed on one of our major streets downtown. Shops, a hotel, and the Rideau Centre, which I mentioned in yesterday's post, were all evacuated due to a gas leak linked to the collapse. I passed by to the west in the early afternoon. Everything was cordoned off, and the media were reporting from here. The sinkhole can be seen by enlarging the pic; it's the big black slash in the middle of the road a block away.
