My first shot today is taken from a traffic island on Elgin Street looking north into the heart of Confederation Square- the National War Memorial surrounded by landmarks. Throughout this area, tulips were in bloom in planter boxes.

Looking over to the right, one of those landmarks, the National Arts Centre, with its glass tower featuring projected images.
I started making my way towards the Memorial, stopping to take this shot.
The Memorial commemorates the Canadians who fought and died of two World Wars, the Korean War, the South African War, and the Afghan War, as well as those in military service. Dedicated in 1939 months before the outbreak of the Second World War, it is a place of remembrance on a regular basis.
The tulips include some planted in regular flowerbeds around the perimeter, as well as planters on the south side of the grounds.
Moving west from the Memorial, I took more shots of tulips in planters, with Parliament Hill beyond.
