May in Ottawa is for TULIPS. The Tulip Festival starts early May and officially kicks off spring into action with hundreds of thousands blooming tulips spread out across the city. One of my favorite places to see the tulips is Dow's Lake. I've been coming here to see the tulips since childhood.
Every year I want to capture all of the tulips on camera. There are just so many of them and each one is even prettier than the last! Pictures never really do them justice though. The true beauty of these blooming flowers can only be fully seen in real life as the colors are truly magnificent!
I have and will continue to capture the beauty of the Tulip Festival every year. My earliest photo memory of this place is back when I was about 8 years old when my mom would bring me and my brother here. I have a photo of us sitting in front of the tulips in the exact same spot as a photo from last year. Such great memories!
After visiting the tulips, this is a great place to take a break, enjoy a yummy ice cream cone, lay on the grass with a good book, and enjoy the sunshine :)
Happy Victoria Day long weekend my Canadian friends! Hope everyone else has a lovely weekend too!
