Artistic Works And Real Tulips

In the Glebe, there were several of these large tulip sculptures, newly painted for this year.


Near the Bank Street Bridge, there is a pond that's connected to the nearby Rideau Canal. There are a couple of flowerbeds alongside it. These were the tulips present this year.


Walking further west along the pathways, this bench at a house caught my eye. Beyond that, the tulips in late afternoon sunlight did the same thing.
