Now that summer is upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, it was time for a new header. This one was taken last Canada Day during a quiet interlude outside the Museum of History in Gatineau, with a view of the Ottawa skyline across the river.
There are a number of planters set up along the path on the west edge of Major's Hill Park. They tend to be planted less densely, and make a lovely shot with Parliament and the Ottawa River in the background.
Less dense in the way of tulips also applies to the area around some foundations, which are preserved in the park and once housed the By family during the Canal building period.
At the north end of the park are larger beds of tulips. This one features the glass tower of the National Gallery as a backdrop.
While this includes Notre Dame.
We'll carry on here tomorrow with the first bed, seen here.
