Picking up where I left off yesterday, here are more views of the tulips in Jacques Cartier Park.
Departing, I paused to photograph the statue of Montreal Canadiens icon Maurice "Rocket" Richard, which stands at the main entrance into the park. Tulips were found here too.
Crossing west of the Alexandra Bridge brought me to the grounds of the Canadian Museum of History. The largest of the tulip beds on the property is here. Signage is for a temporary exhibit that I plan on seeing. More from here tomorrow.
The tulips are absolutely everywhere, how lucky you are to wander with such inspiration surrounding you. I have planted many bulbs this year from seeing your tour of the tulips in bloom.ReplyDelete
It must be so pleasant to walk there!ReplyDelete
I'm still enjoying our tulip feast! There's plenty of statues of footballers and cricketers here, but no hockey-players as far as I know.ReplyDelete
Cool sculpture and I love the tulips! It is a pretty park!
Happy Sunday, have a great new week!
Belas tulipas e gostei da escultura.ReplyDelete

Tulips and Rocket Richard - that's quite a one two punch!ReplyDelete
@Gemel: it is an amazing event.ReplyDelete
@Italiafinlandia: it is indeed.
@John: the Rocket is one of the greatest to ever play the game, and revered in Quebec.
@Eileen: thank you.
@Marie: yes it is.
@Sharon: I think so.
Lovely flowers yet again!ReplyDelete
...the rivers of tulips keep flowing.ReplyDelete
I like the individualistic orange flowers in photos 2 and 3.ReplyDelete
It looks like they are at their prime now!ReplyDelete
Lovely flowers...and I imagine the plants are yanked out after they are finished blooming...but I've never grown tulips, so that's just a guess.ReplyDelete
When you think about , they have shown off many locations by using tulips.ReplyDelete
A riot of colour.ReplyDelete

Neverending Tulips, I wonder what will be replacing them once they've finished flowering?ReplyDelete

@Amy: they have now been replaced by ones that'll flower into October.
