Flower Beds

 Today I feature random tulips from places around the city. These two are taken at churches in the Glebe.

Here we have the front garden of a Lowertown home.

This garden is in Centretown.

Planters with tulips can be found in the courtyards of the Byward Market.

These are in Confederation Park.

For today I finish in the Glebe with these shots. Central Park runs through the north end of the neighbourhood. Some of these may have been planted by human hands. But I suspect the work of squirrel gardeners, especially with tulips on the wooded slope.


  1. ...thanks for the update from Tulip Town.

  2. Tulips are nothing if not ubiquitous.

  3. Whether en masse or one or two, tulips are so pretty ­čîĚ

  4. I never thought of putting tulips in boxes. Great idea though.

  5. @Italiafinlandia: lots more.

    @Tom: you're welcome.

    @David: quite true.

    @Grace: I agree.

    @Marie: it's common here.

  6. The colourful tulips are great for brightening up the gardens.

  7. Lovely floral beds of flowers ~ Happy Week to You ~ Xo

  8. Tulips are great but some of us make lousy gardeners.

  9. Critters do like to do a bit of gardening.
    Are you sure the theme is 'When I can travel again'? How did you find out as I can find no info about it on the CDP site.

  10. If I lived there, I would certainly want some in my yard.

  11. Lovely photos, those little pop-up gardens are a real treat to see.

  12. Makes me wonder why we sometimes refer to these as tulip "beds". Is it because the bulbs remain dormant through the winter? That's the only reason I can think of.

  13. They add so much colour to the gardens people have.

  14. @Francisco: thanks.

    @Magiceye: they do.

    @Nancy: very much so.

    @Carol: thank you.

    @Red: I would.

    @Orvokki: indeed.

  15. @RedPat: critters are like that. It's on the CDP facebook page, along with two themes beyond that. I'll leave a comment asking that the website be updated.

    @Sharon: so many do.

    @Maywyn: they really are.

    @Jeanie: they're pretty.

    @Revrunner: that's likely.

    @Bill: indeed.

  16. Thanks! I'm not on Facebook. You are a good organizer!

  17. Tulips always make gardens more colorful and beautiful.

  18. Love tulips no matter what species of gardener plants them! We had four pink tulips show up in the edging around our tiny apartment patio. I am pretty sure that the human yard service the complex employs would not bother with that and we have a lot of squirrels. Yay for them, they do good work and are entertaining besides.

  19. Most gardeners seem to plant tulips in your area. I have been inspired and am getting some bulbs for my garden.

  20. All the tulips look great planted in all the different areas!!

  21. @RedPat: you're welcome.

    @Jan: yes they do.

    @Sallie: squirrels are very busy gardeners.

    @Gemel: I think locals seeing the tulips in spring inspires them to buy bulbs for planting in the fall.

    @Happyone: tulips do cheer one up.

  22. Breathing in all your beauty! Thanks

  23. Love those pretty reds. :-)

  24. Lovely to see all those beautiful tulips. They certainly brighten up a day, thanks William.

  25. Wonderful to view everyone’s flowers and especially the single red tulip which I also have a random red tulip growing in lots of unexpected places!

  26. @Cloudia: you're welcome.

    @Joanne: me too.

    @DJan: they do.

    @Denise: you're welcome.

    @Karen: thank you.
