A reminder to members of City Daily Photo that the June theme day is Me. I will be interrupting this series for that day before getting back into the tulips, as I already have had that post ready for quite some time. :)
Here we have more views of tulips and tulip beds along the path in Commissioners Park during my second visit.
Two more panels from the park. Canadian soldiers liberated the Netherlands at war's end, and it has created an enduring friendship between the two countries. Tulips have been part of that ever since, with the Dutch royal family and the Dutch government sending tulips to Canada each year. A million tulip bulbs grace the flower beds that are part of the festival here in Ottawa and Gatineau. That doesn't include those tulips in residential gardens.
Princess Margriet has regularly returned to Canada.
