Along The Pathways Of History

 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.

  11. 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,
