Home, Garden, And The Sight Of Tulip Beds

 Continuing on, here we have more tulips outside homes in Ottawa, these being in the Glebe.

These are tulips of a different kind- sheets that were flowing in the breeze in Little Italy.

Another couple of looks at a flowerbed I showed you a couple of days ago.

I continued along in the neighbourhood and saw more tulips in front gardens.

I'm leaving off today with this shot taken on the grounds at the Canadian War Museum, where I stopped briefly during my rounds.  This lone tulip was growing beneath an evergreen, far from any formal flowerbed or planter. The work of a squirrel gardener? We'll be back to the series after tomorrow's theme day.

Spring Delights Wherever You Look

Continuing on, more tulips from more residential gardens to start things off today.

I was crossing Elgin Street late in the afternoon and photographed this set of planters on the traffic island south of Confederation Square. The National War Memorial lay beyond, flanked by the Chambers and Parliament Hill at left, and the Chateau Laurier and National Arts Centre at right.

These were taken on another day at Abbotsford House in the Glebe.

And these are from more residential gardens.

Here we have tulips lining a path at Lansdowne Park. We'll be back in this area after the beginning of the month.

Elsewhere in the Glebe, more flowerbeds.

These are outside St. Giles Presbyterian Church in the Glebe.

Tulips Found Around The City

 I have some shots now of tulips in various places around the region. I start with these two shots taken one afternoon in the front yard of a school downtown.

I focused on one tulip in a planter outside an office tower downtown.

Here we have a flowerbed in Little Italy.

These are beyond Commissioners Park, in the garden of a private home.

And over on the east side of the Bronson Bridge, a large flowerbed filled with tulips.

Variety In The Flowerbeds

 Picking up where I left off yesterday, more of the tulips in Commissioners Park.

One last shot for this visit. I will return to this park when I close out the series on the Tulip Festival.

Beauty Along The Path

 More beautiful tulips today.

Here at the south end of the park, the beds are particularly delightful.

These may be the most photographed homes in the city during the festival.
