Tulip Blooms Alongside The Rideau Canal

Here we have daffodils growing in the grass on the slope leading onto the Flora Bridge ramp.

When I did the post on the bridge, I had one shot taken of the pond with a blossoming tree, and mentioned the bed of tulips at the far side. This is it, looking pretty in pink and red.

Of course every once in awhile a rogue tulip will make itself known. I like looking for them.


  1. the curved bed of tulips around the lake is very attractive.

  2. It´s a pink world, in my case... egg-wise today ;-)

  3. ...since travel is off the table, thanks for sharing all of this colors.

  4. Tulips and daffodils, nature's springtime gifts to us.

  5. @Red: it is.

    @Iris: pink indeed.

    @Tom: you're welcome.

    @Agnieszka: thank you.

    @Sharon: that they are.

  6. I love the flowers around the pond, and was able to see the canal (I think) through railings and the bridge supports.

  7. They use so many exotic double tulips in the plantings! Wonderful, William.

  8. Another fantastic display. Tweeted.

  9. Hello,
    The pinks are beautiful, my favorite today! Take care, Enjoy your day!

  10. Your new picture above is fabulous.
    Haven't been to a park with flowers this year. I'm still cautious, giving preference to parks in my neighbourhood and those have no flower beds!!

  11. I have never seen so many pink tulips before. Beautiful views!

  12. Lovely place and colorful photos

  13. A stroll where flowers grow is good for the soul.

  14. Good to see there are rebel tulips too! :D

  15. The adjacent curves make a nice image.

  16. There is a line in the movie/book (I think it is in the book too) The Color Purple. It is something to the effect of: I think it upsets God when we walk past the color purple and fail to take notice of it. These photos remind me of it. There's not a lot of purple in them, but there is beauty. Thanks for sharing them here.

  17. @Barbara: yes, it's there.

    @RedPat: it's a great mix.

    @Mari: thank you.

    @Eileen: thanks.

    @Catarina: I can relate.

    @Marleen: there were many.

    @Bill: very much so.

    @Carol: thank you.

    @Maywyn: indeed.

    @Jennifer: you're welcome.

    @Magiceye: I love looking for those.

    @Linda: they do indeed.

    @Sandi: a fitting quote.
