Spring in Ottawa
Photos: May 21, 2016
Each year Ottawa plants over a million tulips. Large beds can be seen in many parts of the city. These red and white tulips were bred for Canada's 150th birthday which will take place next year (July 1, 2017).
Last weekends colder than average temperatures have been followed by this weekend's above average temperatures. Spring is in overdrive with everything that can bloom racing to open.
I had to add a photo of the Peace Tower - to prove that these really are photos from Ottawa. Slightly camouflaged by the trees is a crane. Every building on Parliament Hill seems to be undergoing repairs and renovatiosn - cranes and scaffolding are ubiquitous.
