Picking up where I left off yesterday, here we have another bed of tulips from that first visit to Commissioners Park.
Daffodils can be found close by, in the grass or on a traffic island in the midst of the roadway here, with Dow's Lake and the Arboretum in the background.
More tulips, showing up well in the sunlight.
Most of the tulip beds here lie on the east side of the bike path, but there are some on the west side which I can always count on to be early bloomers. This particular bed, with the lake beyond, contains a great number of red emperor tulips.
In terms of the tulip beds, I'm finishing today's post with the last shot I took on that first visit. I've featured this one before, and a similar perspective can be seen in my header image at present from last year. The tulips in these beds weren't out at the time, but we'll see them as they were during my next visit, yet to come.
Here are two more of the panels. With the Netherlands under occupation, Queen Wilhelmina found sanctuary in Britain, working with her son in law Prince Bernhard on helping the Dutch from there. Her daughter, Crown Princess Juliana, was sent here to Canada, living with her daughters in Ottawa during the war years.
