A Sea of Tulips

I just realized the Tulip Festuival is happening in Ottawa and I’m missing it. That’s one of the drawbacks of traveling – you miss some things back home. Here are some photos from the last time I was in town for the Tulip Festival, 2017.

A photo essay today, just to give you a sampling of what you missed at the 2017 Canadian Tulip Festival. Even though essentially I see the same thing every year (I mean, a tulip is a tulip after all), somehow it does seem fresh and new each time.

I think that may have something to do with the timing. Ottawa has long, sometimes harsh, winters. When the tulips come out they herald the start of Spring and the return of some warm weather. Everyone gets excited, and the burst of blooms captures that excitement, even if you have seen it countless Springs before.
