Tulips In The Park

The Tulip Festival wrapped up yesterday, but I have plenty more shots to come, going into June.

Here is more from Major's Hill Park today, starting with a close up of tulips in the flowerbed I finished off with in yesterday's post.


The other flowerbed here at the end of the park has Notre Dame and the National Gallery as backdrops, depending on the angle you photograph from.

  11. @SRQ: they put on quite a show this year.

    @Sandi: they are!

    @Red: it does indeed.

    @Stefan: the tulips were late this year because of the kind of winter we had. Some years, the last weekend of the festival, you end up having most of them gone. This year they were at their peak on the last weekend.

    @Cloudia: they dazzle with colour.

    @Linda: indeed!

  17. @Norma: the Dutch do love their tulips!

    @Lowell: I love to get shots of the church from this angle, particularly at this time of year.

    @Catalyst: the mixed ones are really quite a splash of colours.

    @Whisk: they are!

    @Klara: red and white together are often planted as a nod to our colours. The Canada 150 tulip (of which there were a lot) has both colours in one.

    @RedPat: thanks!

    @Bill: they are.
