The Rideau Centre rooftop includes flower beds, grass, trees, bushes, and paths. During the Tulip Festival there are tulips aplenty in the flower beds. This first view includes a look towards Arts Court in the background.
More views from up here. The glass we see here and there are skylights looking into the mall below. The Rideau Centre includes access points into the convention centre; some of it is included with the second half of this post. The doors coming out of it onto this roof would have to be emergency exits.
More from here tomorrow.

Isn't it funny how our eyes accept the view of a flower bed when dappled in light and shade, but when the camera captures the scene, at least to my eyes, the view becomes the dappled light and shade mainly, and oh yes, there are the flowers too.ReplyDelete
Wonderful rooftop garden and great photography ~ Happy Weekend to you ~ XoReplyDelete

Also, thanks for your visits and comments on my blog. I try to visit blogs on at least a weekly basis and will look at previous posts but not able to comment on all that I have missed.ReplyDelete
