Returning To The Lake

I am coming to the end of the series, with four final posts from one of the biggest sites for tulips during the festival. This bed of tulips is one I've shown earlier in the series, being the one alongside the Rideau Canal just east of where it widens into Dow's Lake. I came back here on the last Friday of the festival, later in the afternoon.


Here where Commissioners Park begins, the tulips were at their peak at the time.

  21. Jenn has a good point: almost as good as forest bathing. I'd bet that floral bathing can hold its own. These views are truly stunningly beautiful.
