One day during the festival, I went up to the rooftop on the Rideau Centre mall, where there are flower beds and views of the area. Tulips were growing there at the time, and trees were blossoming. This first shot features the old courthouse that now houses Arts Court in the background.
Another view takes in the Byward Market to the north. Notre Dame can be glimpsed to the left.
On another day, I passed through the campus at the University of Ottawa and photographed a couple of tulip beds.
On the roof? That's neat! Pretty scenes you're posting lately, so many flowers!ReplyDelete
You just can't have too many tulips.ReplyDelete

Amazing colours in every direction. A photographers delight.ReplyDelete

@Linda: considering the size of the trees, the garden must have been placed there when the mall was built.ReplyDelete
@Marleen: it does!
@Tom: they are indeed.
@Beth: thank you!
To be sure, spring has finally sprung in Ottawa!ReplyDelete
Hello, I do love seeing all those pretty tulips! Lovely series! Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
Tulips on rooftops? Is there anywhere in Ottawa that tulips have not taken over? One might think the city is dressing up for a major party!ReplyDelete
Love those shots at the University!ReplyDelete
I attended U of O in 1981! Hard to believe where the time goes. Great photos.ReplyDelete
Gardening on roof tops is fairly new but this one shows off by some colorful tulips. You got some good views from the rooftop.ReplyDelete
One can never feel doom and gloom seeing all these colorful tulips. Thanks for sharing. Garden on roof tops. Clever idea as well.ReplyDelete
