Museum Flowers

I do spend most of my time in Ottawa, but the city of Gatineau lies on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River, and it is here, above the shoreline, that we find one of the national museums, the Canadian Museum of History, with its marvelous architecture by Douglas Cardinal. I came in May, because there are tulip beds to be found here. The exhibition wing can be seen behind them, with the landmarks of the Chateau Laurier and Parliament Hill out across the river.


This bed is alongside the curatorial wing of the museum. We'll pick up here tomorrow.
