Memorial

One day during tulip time I went back to the War Memorial. Planters were set up across the street coming out of Sparks Street.


The Memorial looms in the background here beyond the trees.


Tulips can be found ringing around the Memorial site. We'll see more of this tomorrow.

  10. While I haven't been posting a comment on every post, William, I have been enjoying the beauty of these tulip blooms. It's a welcome break from all the sadly negative news and images.

  16. I'm beginning to wonder if there are any places in Ottawa that aren't planted with tulips.
