The Rideau Centre is a shopping mall downtown. Its rooftop is a green one, with skylights and paths mingling with flowerbeds, bushes, and grass. Tulips happen to be there in May.
This overlook on the east side looks over towards the campus of the University of Ottawa. The buildings in the background include the historic courthouse and former prison, the Carleton County Gaol. Today they house Arts Court and a travel hostel. Land beyond them has been developed to include a hotel-condo tower, space for the University's theatre program, and expanded quarters for the Ottawa Art Gallery. I really have to take you into the OAG sometime.
Along with the plants up here, there are a few resident rabbits (wascally wabbits to the esteemed Mr. Elmer Fudd, Esquire and 33rd Degree Master Mason Of The Order Of The Scottish Rite) who keep the lawn trim.
I leave off with one more look at rooftop tulips. Tomorrow is the theme day, and of course pink tulips must be part of that mix. We'll have another location for tulips after that.
