A Splash Of Spring Blooms High Above The River

The planters along the west path in Major's Hill Park include views of the Ottawa River down below.

Coming to the north end of the park, the view includes the beds up here, with Notre Dame and the National Gallery as backdrops.

  1. On balance I think I prefer my flowers in a more natural setting, but I can't deny the skill involved in presenting such perfect formal beds.

  5. Tight lawns with grass that has been mowed very short, we this see less and less in the Netherlands. Less mowing results in more biodiversity.
