On Sunday, Elizabeth, Adam and I went to the Tulip Festival here in Ottawa. I have to admit, all those tulips were pretty stunning. We went to two of the four major sites, Major's Hill Park (between the canal and Sussex) and Casino du Lac Leamy (in Hull), with plans to hit the other two (Dow's Lake and Parliament Hill) later (hopefully around sunset for a different perspective). The Casino was a little disappointing, but Major's Hill Park had a lot of tulips and was worth the visit. I'm looking forward to seeing Parliament Hill and Dow's Lake.

I love this photo, that poor little red tulip looks so out of place, yet it's so beautiful at the same time.

Wondering where the tulips originally came from? Check out a history of the tulip festival here:
