Flowerbeds Along The Pathway

There is a sculpture in one of the flowerbeds, one that is sparsely planted with tulips amid bushes that remain in place.

Sparse planting like this nonetheless makes for an interesting look at tulips.

The next bed was a raised flowerbed set in a large circle, with yellows and Canada 150 tulips.

The bed across from them had a mixture of colours.


  1. Sometimes the mass plantings remind of stained glass windows.

  2. Hello, love the tulips. The bike rider looks as though they are riding through the tulips. Not tip-toeing. Happy weekend to you!

  3. There is beauty everywhere. Ottawa is a great city - for six months of the year!

  4. ..they will slow down the walkers.

  5. That's a gorgeous mix of colours William 💜

  6. I love the Impressionistic mix of colors. I used to always use my crayons by rubbing several colors over each other to create that mixture in one place.

  7. Lovely pathway photos ^_^

  8. It's amazing the different sizes and colors of tulips.

  9. It looks like some of these tulips may be on the wane now, but they have sure been great photo subject matter for these posts, William.

  10. It looks like this will be ending (all too soon). Tweeted.
