A Mixture Of Colours

I left off with the ducks yesterday; they were near these beds on the west side of the lawn.


In this part of the park, most of the beds border the east side of the park.


There were several varieties side by side, with bulbs named for Canadian cities. These two feature Calgary and Ottawa named bulbs.


This is a good spot to leave off with, the flower beds below this low stone wall in the park. We'll pick up here tomorrow.

  24. I'm thinking since this is Canada, the bulbs are left in the ground over the winter months. Is that true. If not those gardeners had a mass amount of work to accomplish that massing of tulips. They are beautiful. Thanks for posting, William.
