Dazzling

Picking up where I left off yesterday, more of the rich variety of tulips at Dow's Lake.


Some from this bed, dedicated in honour of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Muscari, the small purple flower accompanying the tulips, is often a companion flower to tulips in these beds.


I finish today with these tulips growing off on their own across from the formal beds. Tomorrow we move elsewhere.

  23. In terms of the number of tulips, Ottawa is not inferior to 'the Keukenhof', I think.
