Tulip Views

Today is Victoria Day here in Canada. Take a peek over at my writer's blog today for a post about it.

Heading home one evening, I went into Central Park in the Glebe. There's a small planting of tulips at a tree here.

As well as some along the slope- though I sometimes wonder if their placement here is the work of squirrel gardeners.

A few minutes later this set of tulips in a residential garden caught my eye.

A couple of days later I was heading to Dow's Lake via a different route, taking the Canal pathway from Bank Street and heading west. At this location where I started is a pond that's linked to the Canal, and at one end is a bed of tulips.

My path led me onward, past several gardens where the homeowners include tulips among their plantings.


  1. Horrible weather in your area, you okay?

  2. This is my last day of vacation in NB so it has been a long weekend for two weeks for me!

  3. ...thanks for the reminder about Victoria day, it had slipped my mind. Enjoy your day.
