Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians! It'll be a weird one here with all official events called off due to Covid, and the museums closed.
The first day of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo. For July, that theme is Neighbourhood. Check out how others areinterpreting this theme right here. For me, I'm in the midst of an extended series on our Tulip Festival, which was held in May. Today's post features three neighbourhoods in close proximity.
Just east of the Bronson Avenue Bridge where it crosses the Rideau Canal, a flowerbed lies near the Canal. This spot is in the Glebe neighbourhood. Across the Canal, glimpsed among the trees, are homes in the Old Ottawa South neighbourhood.
The bridge, seen here, marks where the Canal widens into Dow's Lake.
This view from the south side of the bed features homes of the Glebe.
Crossing to the west side of Bronson brings us back into Commissioners Park, one of the major tulip sites. The homes west of Bronson and bordering the park are part of a neighbourhood in its own right, called the Glebe Annex. I carry on with this visit to the park tomorrow and in the days to come.
