Tulips On The Roof And On Campus

One day during the festival, I went up to the rooftop on the Rideau Centre mall, where there are flower beds and views of the area. Tulips were growing there at the time, and trees were blossoming. This first shot features the old courthouse that now houses Arts Court in the background.


Another view takes in the Byward Market to the north. Notre Dame can be glimpsed to the left.


On another day, I passed through the campus at the University of Ottawa and photographed a couple of tulip beds.

  7. @Linda: considering the size of the trees, the garden must have been placed there when the mall was built.

  10. Tulips on rooftops? Is there anywhere in Ottawa that tulips have not taken over? One might think the city is dressing up for a major party!
