Visiting The Beds Along The Rideau Canal

The tulips in these first shots are on the Old Ottawa South side of the Rideau Canal, near my home.


Over on the Glebe side of the Canal, near the Bank Street Bridge, more tulips can be found alongside the pond linked to the Canal.

  3. 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 ?

  22. I bet you love living there! Do you often tiptoe through the tulips?

  23. @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!
