Confederation Park downtown had tulips during the festival. I took this first shot late one afternoon, while walking with Tom and his wife up towards the War Memorial.
A few days later I returned. I approached via the staircase descending from the Mackenzie King Bridge and photographed this tree in full bloom.
These red tulips were arranged near one of the military monuments found here in the park.
A totem pole is here, and tulips are seen behind it.
Many of the tulips here are of the Canada 150 variety.
I circled around to frame the National Aboriginal Veterans Monument with spring blossoms.
Then I headed down the street towards another park entrance.
I like to frame a shot of the tulips at ground level with spring blossoms above. That can best be done at this entrance. A few days earlier, when I had first visited, the trees had not been in blossom stage, but in those three or four days, blossoms exploded into full view on many trees in the area.
