Last Look At Parliamentary Tulips

Earlier in the series I showed you tulips on Parliament Hill. At the time, the red ones were the only ones showing. When I took these, the Canada 150 tulips were out and about as well.


These I took on another day, late in the festival. There are a number of flowerbeds outside the Royal Canadian Mint up on Sussex Drive.


And this I took coming back from Gatineau for some tulip shots. There is a platform at the entrance to the Alexandra Bridge that gives a great view of Parliament Hill. The tulips in the planters are a bonus. Tomorrow we'll have a look at things in Gatineau.

  13. Gorgeous! Love the yellow ones, too. I was wondering though, if parliamentary tulips get to vote on who blossoms first? :)

  24. These plantings are so beautiful -- the masses of colors are gorgeous. Set off against the regal buildings they're even more striking.
