A Show Of Colour In The Park

I've featured Major's Hill Park already in the series; here Colonel By looks across to Parliament Hill, with a row of tulips behind him. It was busy in the park during the final weekend of the festival, as people explored the flowerbeds throughout the park.

  1. The flower sellers do not have much future there ... right? (Just kidding).

  4. How many tulips do they estimate are in your city? How many varieties? What is the rarest? They look so well groomed.

  7. @Tomas: hah!

    @Francisco: thank you.

    @Nancy: they are indeed.

    @Tom: more to come.

    @Janis: more than a million bulbs get placed. I would estimate in any given year there would be fifty to a hundred different types.

    @Eileen: thank you!

    @Beth: it was very busy.

  9. I wonder if these bulbs are all dug up and replanted?

  10. I was thinking about all the work involved in the planting and caring for these gorgeous flowers! Pretty amazing.

    Please note I've moved to a new blog after 8 years with CDP. It will focus more on creative photography than a place. It's called "Lowell's Photos" and is located at http://www.lowellsphotos.com. Hope to see you there.

  11. The placement of colors in these beds was nicely done as it shows things off very well.

  12. I love those patches of pink in the mix!

  13. @Marleen: there are a lot!

    @Janey: yes, they're dug up around now and replanted in the fall. During the summer these beds have different flowers in them. Such is the case throughout the various flowerbeds across both cities.

    @Karl: I agree!

    @Lowell: it's a lot of work.

    @Red: it really does.

    @Sharon: so do I.

  15. People are still enjoying seeing them. It is pretty impressive considering all the work that goes in to it the event. The workers in the background that you don't see do an excellent job.
