Tulip Time

Spring time in Ottawa is synonymous with tulips. This is the first weekend of the 2007 Tulip Festival and for once the weather is perfect! The early tulips are opening, and the later tulips are tall and turgid, probably the majority will begin blooming this week. This is taken at Major's Hill Park, and the scary completely out of place ultra modern building you can just see in the background (between the tulip and the festival flags) is the fortress also known as the American eyesore, er, I mean the American Embassy ;)

Love the flowers! And I'd love to be there to see them in person.
