This weekend marks the beginning of the tulip festival – and as I am sure you are already aware, it is my favourite festival in Ottawa! I have my weekends roughly planned to try and see as many of the different locations as possible. The tulips are only around for about a month, and I want to see them all!These shots are from the Dows Lake/Commissioner’s Park location, which happens to be my favourite location. I went this morning and walked around. Most of the flowers are still just buds, but a few were out and the rest will be soon enough.
