A Tulip Bed Honouring A Queen

 I continue today with the tulips I left off with yesterday.

Across the path is the last of the big beds in this part of the park, with a fringe of muscari accompanying the tulips.

I like to get shots from ground level- it gives the muscari a chance to shine too.

This particular bed has plaques in English and French, first unveiled by Dutch Queen Juliana in 1967 during a return visit. After her death, the bed was re-dedicated in her memory.

Last views of this bed.

And for today, tulips across the path to close out the post. I'll return to Commissioners Park when I close out this series, but tomorrow I'm taking things to another location.


  1. Nice to see a bed of tulips is still dedicated to queen Juliana.

  2. Stunning flower beds quite fitting for royalty.

  3. Few customs and conventions linger so long as the bond between Canada and the Netherlands.

  4. Getting low as for the muscari is good, but it can be difficult for an older body.

  5. Hello,
    The tulips gardens are beautiful, love sight! Take care, enjoy your new week!

  6. @Nancy: they are.

    @Jan: I think so too.

    @Francisco: thanks.

    @Gemel: indeed.

    @David: that's true.

    @Anvilcloud: not a problem for me.

    @Eileen: thank you.

  7. The ground shots are wonderful!

  8. The tulip certainly has a prominent place in Canada's history.

  9. I'm for anything honoring the Queen! Those ground level shots with the muscari in the foreground are really striking, William. I love those a lot.

  10. Interesting way to honor the Queen. Lovely tulips.

  11. Gorgeous flowers for a 'Queen' ~ great photos and the plague is excellent ~

    Wishing you good health, laughter, and love in your days,
