In the last days of April, I went down to Commissioners Park at Dows Lake. This scilla on the grass caught my eye.
My purpose for stopping in was simple. I wanted to check on the progress of the flowerbeds in this park, which is one of the key locations for the Canadian Tulip Festival. While Covid has removed formal programming from the event, the tulips are out regardless. And so today we begin an extensive series on the festival, which concludes this coming weekend.
Most of the beds were in pre-bloom state.
