Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
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.
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.
Love the purple ones!
...Ottawow for sure!
Wow, the colors are lovely, beautiful tulips and views!Have a happy day and a great weekend!
A splash of spring is literally happening here - it is raining.
Wonderful sights to see!
Truly magnificent, really beautiful photos. Tulips are pure happiness.

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.

I like the round flower beds.
Tulips are in bloom here but not in the quantity of Ottawa’s tulips.
@Nancy: they are.@Catarina: very much so.@Marleen: so do I.@Bill: yes they are.@Marie: I figured they'd bloom a bit later in the Atlantic provinces.

Love the way the colours blend together in that first group.
Love those splashes. Tweeted.
Beauties. The pink and peach tulips are nice colors.
I wonder what they do when they're all through blooming.
@Carol: thank you.@fun60: I do too.@Mari: thank you.@Maywyn: they are.@Revrunner: when they are done the bulbs are dug up and other flowers and plants are put in for the duration of the growing season.
Tulips make everything g look betterMB
So may tulips together sure make a beautiful splash of color.
I like the look of the pink and peach tulips ...All the best Jan
You have showed us both, and I must say, I prefer dense planting to sparse.
William - I was pretty impressed with the yellow until I saw the purple/white/pink flowerbed. Knocked my socks off!
@MB: they do.@Happyone: indeed.@Jan: so do I.@Joanne: I like both.@Angie: thank you.

You still have tulips in Ottawa! They've all already gone in my town.
Now they're gone. Peak time this year seemed to be May 8th through 15th.
