Canal Path

Picking up where I left off yesterday, here were more colours in Commissioners Park.


Here at left is one of the larger flowerbeds. You might remember it from the tulip festival series.


I carried on with the walk. That flash of red-orange caught my eye.


As did the colours here.


The Rideau Canal narrows for its final course through the downtown, at the southeast edge of the lake. The Canal itself is on the far side of the roadway here, but the paths continue.


I continued my walk, and this statue and bench in a private residence garden caught my eye.


I came towards a spot where a tree was in full colours. This tree stands downslope from a familiar building.


The building in question is the official residence of the Greek ambassador.


Here we have the view from the far side of the tree. We continue on with this tomorrow.

  24. Wonderful park, but what an awful blue canopy above that stairway.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hmm, blue canopy. Might be nice in a rain storm. I presume it has to come down in winter. Right?
