The Garden Of The Provinces is downtown, set between Library And Archives Canada and Wellington Street on the north, and two churches on the south side: St. Peter's Lutheran Church and Christ Church Cathedral. All three places will be part of Doors Open this weekend, and I plan on visiting them. Spring blossoms were in the trees here during the festival, as were tulips. The Garden is a combination of terraces, sculptures, and flower beds.
Beautiful! I can almost smell the lovely fragrance!ReplyDelete
That first tree is truly stunning. It must be wonderful in person. And the fountain looks lively, too. Throw in a few thousand tulips and you've really got some beautiful sights.ReplyDelete
Photos that indicate that the city where they are is wonderful.ReplyDelete
That fountain is very attractive!ReplyDelete
Looking at all the tulips and the blossoms, Ottawa must be about the most colourful city of Canada, I think.ReplyDelete
Those purples in the first few photos are just stunning! You must be glad to have winter behind you.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos, Wllliam. I love the colours today.ReplyDelete

We're planting purples now, so I especially enjoyed the inspiration.ReplyDelete
The tree in that first photo is a stunner.ReplyDelete
What a great place to visit.ReplyDelete
All so very pretty . Lovely photos , Thanks for sharing , Have a good weekend !.ReplyDelete
Beautiful spring blossoms, William. And you've captured some graceful curves in your compositions.ReplyDelete

I love this pink-rosa color.ReplyDelete

Looks like a wonderful place to visit!ReplyDelete
Those spring blossoms mixed around all those wonderful tulips are so magical.ReplyDelete
I love the colors!ReplyDelete
I was hoping someone would have named that first pinkish tree but I don't see it. It looks a bit like a magnolia, but magnolias don't have flowering as dense as that. Whatever it is, it is a winner.ReplyDelete
@Cheryl: it is, yes. Though it was less pleasant weather yesterday when I stopped in this area!ReplyDelete
@Gemma: they are, yes.
@Norma: me too.
@Jack: I think the tree is either a cherry or crabapple tree.
Your sights and flowers for sure is a place tourist can enjoy.ReplyDelete
That they are.Delete
