I returned to the National War Memorial one day to photograph the tulips again.
Crossing the street, I took these shots of tulips in planters outside the Chateau Laurier.
Heading into Major's Hill Park, I concentrated on the beds around the statue of Colonel John By.
One last shot for today. I will pick up with this bed of tulips the day after tomorrow. For the theme day tomorrow, I will still be in this park, but with a different subject.
Nice to see special places in full glory.ReplyDelete
That's a large memorial but worth having one that stands out.ReplyDelete
A place that should be visited...ReplyDelete
The flowers make the place brighter.ReplyDelete
Lovely with all those tulips!ReplyDelete
Very beautiful again. I have not seen one tulip here, so... thank you!ReplyDelete
Love the colourful tulips. This place is worth returning just to enjoy the beauty of the tulips.ReplyDelete
Colonel John By stands well there, raised high among the tulips.ReplyDelete
Oh does this mean the end of the tulips! A great collection of photos here William, I especially like the last.ReplyDelete

Speaking of the War Memorial reminds me of a discussion Miriam and I were having the other day about the removal of statues that.commemorate some of the worst of our history. Do you happen to know whether there is a statue commemorating our Peacekeepers? That was surely one of our great initiatives and worthy of celebration,ReplyDelete
Definitely worth another visit William, wonderful captures 🌷ReplyDelete
