Tiptoeing Near the Tulips

As I speculated in the previous post, I did wander about taking Canada 150 tulip photos yesterday morning; most of the beds were not in glorious sites, but by getting close, one can compensate.

This first shot it from Market Square,


You can see what I mean about general background. The view from the other direction was worse.


Then, I went to the library where the raised beds were next to the wall, which you can glimpse a bit in the first photo especially. Zooming in and using a wide aperture does help.




Next, we were off to town hall, which is more interesting.



The beds were thicker here.



But I still took some close-ups.


There were other stops, but the last that I will show is from St James park, which was the nicest setting by far.

I really like these tulips, I think I'll have to look around town to find some.

I'm a sucker for tulips, although you never find beds of them like that in southern CA. Nice!

The history of tulips is fascinating ... you've done them justice and the Town Hall building is magnificent.

Tulips do not last long enough for me.

Aren't they amazing? What a task to do these genetics!

P.S> You inspired me and I ordered 5gm of forget-me-nots! Mine seem to not have seeded.

OK, P.P.S.
We were in Carleton Place Canoe club to go to the art show, as a neighbour was showing there. Just lovely!
