I came into Jacques Cartier Park to photograph the tulip beds here; the park is along the shore of the Ottawa River, on the east side of the Alexandra Bridge, with views across the river to Parliament Hill. There was something else going on here while I was visiting. Structures are being erected for MosiaCanada, a living art exhibit involving plants growing out of the frames that will be ready for Canada Day and then through the fall. I showed you one of these when I was here during Winterlude. Others were being added in place.
Here we have the tulip beds in the park. It was a mixture, with yellow, orange, and the Canada 150 tulips dominant.
Coming back out of the park, I paused at the main entrance, where tulips are always planted around the larger than life statue of legendary Montreal Canadiens player Maurice "Rocket" Richard. It's a big statue, and the artist managed to put almost all of the weight of it onto one skate and the hockey stick. The Rocket looks like he's about to line up his next shot on goal.
