Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Awww, gee, William...how do you bear to live immersed in such BEAUTY!?! 8->
These tulips must be amazing to see with your own eyes. Your photos are fantastic!
Marvelous shot !Another thing.Today I have heard that it is necessary to wear sunglasses to go to Ottawa, due to reflections of the sun on the ice over all in winter. That is correctly ?Tomás.
How great to see these. Ours have come and gone.
The flowers are gorgeous but I was attracted by those houses in the background - what mansions! They are gorgeous, too!
Must be very nice and joyfull to go for a walk between all those flowers.
@Kay: it is a tough gig.@Denise: thanks!@Tomas: I know I do.@Stuart: ours are done too.@Lowell: they certainly are.@Jan: it is!
Wow - they are everywhere!
The tulips almost look like they're posing for the camera!
So it looks like Ottawa could be called tulip city or the city of tulips!
The red ones, really all but the red ones here I just love.
This is the best time to visit when the tulips are blooming beautifully!
That tree is fabulous!
Those frilly, wine colored ones look so unusual to me.
Such pretty colors everywhere! I'd love to visit there some day, when the tulips are in full bloom!
In feel like I am in The Netherlands.
@RedPat: they certainly are.@Norma: they do, yes.@Red: a good term for it, yes.@Whisk: thank you!@Nancy: alas, now the blooms are done and over with.@Cloudia: thanks!@Sharon: to me too.@Tamago: May is a very good time for them.@Linda: they certainly are.@Janey: and a lot of Dutch people come to see them.
I love the shading in #2 and it is obvious that the tulips are not long for this world. What will be next?JanisGDP
The last photo is my favorite.
Like spring in your area is making up for lost time. :-)
I'm being redundant, but lovely!
It is simply staggering how many tulip beds you have up there!
How lovely, my favorite is the last photo.ugs
I bet you love living there! Do you often tiptoe through the tulips?
@Janis: heat tends to be the contributing factor to finishing off tulips. When I took these shots, it was late during the festival on a hot day.@Bill: thanks!@Revrunner: considering how weird spring started, yes!@Mari: thank you!@Jack: we have a lot.@Orvokki: thanks!@Cheryl: it's not permitted to tiptoe through them!
So many tulips near your home, wow !
There is no shortage of them.
I can't believe you still have tulips in Ottawa. Lovely.
I tend to string out the series beyond when they've finished blooming.
That last photo is very striking!
That last picture I agree is striking .
