Today we start with tulips in a front garden in Little Italy.
St. Peter's Lutheran Church is downtown, and this time of year the tree outside always is in full blossom.
The church overlooks the Garden Of The Provinces and Territories, which had tulips in some of the beds as I passed through.
And on the north side of the street, across from the Garden, is the main headquarters for Library and Archives Canada. Tulips were in the flowerbeds out front.
These tulips were in planters along the street.
Neighbouring Library and Archives to the east is the Supreme Court of Canada, with Parliament beyond that. A flowerbed full of tulips was here.
A short walk back to the west finds a less formal planting of tulips, where the Portage Bridge crosses into Gatineau.
And this is downstream from the Portage Bridge, which can be seen off in the distance crossing the Ottawa River. This is the viewing platform on the Alexandra Bridge, with a planter of tulips.
