Tulip Season in Ottawa

A few weeks ago we went to Ottawa to see the Aboriginal production of King Lear.  And by chance the tulips were in their prime - and my SLR decided that it wasn't going to perform so the following were taken with my cellphone.  Fruit trees and lilacs were also in bloom and the weather couldn't have been better!

Tulips in front of the memorial to Colonel John By

Just a nice juxtaposition of modern and nature

The Chateau Laurier

The parliament buildings in the background and an old lock house

The locks on the canal leading to the Ottawa river. The Museum of Civilization is across the river
