Tulip Colour

 Picking up where I left off yesterday, east of the Bronson Avenue Bridge, where the Rideau Canal widens into Dow's Lake, there is a large standalone flowerbed here, filled with tulips.


Back across the pathway and continuing on my way, these flowering trees caught my eye, as well as other people.


And then it was into Commissioners Park. It was a Saturday- and very crowded. I was reminded why I prefer to photograph here mid-week. After two years of really just the locals seeing the tulips, the tourists were back, and during the weekends, it's very busy here.


The visitors included a number of nuns.
