I returned to Commissioners Park on Wednesday to photograph more tulips. I'm starting outside the park proper, across the street where a bed of tulips can be found near the entrance leading into the quarters for HMCS Carleton. This is a naval reserve unit that has an administration centre and drill hall here at Dow's Lake.
These large tulip sculptures are a fixture during the Tulip Festival.
Heading towards the park, I photographed two more of them along the walkway to the pavilion set at the waterfront.
And then I crossed into Commissioners Park. This first bed of tulips is dedicated in memory of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, who stayed in Ottawa during the Second World War with her daughters.
During a visit in 1967, Juliana unveiled a plaque at this flowerbed. After her death, a second plaque was added in memory of her.
