TARDY TULIPS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Tulips - Part 1I took these photographs at this year’s Tulip Festival in Ottawa. Given our cold rainy spring the tulips are slow to bloom.

I’ve also included a little teaser of what’s to come…

SPRING INTO FALL (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

IRIS

IrisFollowing a trail down to the lake one year, I spotted an Iris growing right off the water. I was standing close to the water’s edge, looking for ducks and almost missed the flower tucked to the side. Every June, I follow the same trail down to the lake and continue to see the Iris return each year.
