Today I am returning for some posts to Commissioners Park at Dow's Lake. This visit was made last week Tuesday morning, on a grey misty day that got better as the day went along, so the next few posts will reflect how the tulips were at that point. I came down with Tom and his wife to the park, where we first found a parking spot and then moved south through the park, photographing tulips.
My title refers to this particular kind of tulip, marked here. Amazing Grace tulips are the pink ones in this bed, mixed in with others.
While many of the tulip beds also feature accompanying flowers- muscari or narcissus, for instance- I noticed these white trilliums growing on the slope behind one flower bed, and they were accessible. I made my way closer for a shot. White trilliums are our provincial flower, and bloom relatively briefly in the spring.
We continued along. The Canada 150 tulip, developed for our anniversary year, was in abundance. Its characteristic white with red accents stands out beautifully.
The pathway carried on, past more colourful tulip beds.
