Ottawa - Mother's Day and Tulip Festival

May 14, 2018  •  1 Comment

Special Mother's Day with two wonderful mums and for Matt, the first with his WtMM in 11 years - very special brunch at The Village House - La Peche.

Grumpy A didn't want to be in this pic.

Followed by an amble across the Wakefiled covered bridge

Plenty of snow melt in the Gatineau River

Followed by Tulip Festival on 14th - each year the Netherlands sends 20,000 bulbs to Canada as a continuing mark of gratitude and friendship for providing safe haven to members of the Netherlands royal family between 1940-1945.

But first a "walk in the park" with A .....

Very particular about the sunglasses - one real cool cat!

Lunch - hot dog all gone, but vege spring roll will fill any gaps

Royal wave from the Canadians

While J slept through it all

Yes this is a tulip and colour so intense that the camera sensor had some difficulty with it

Specially bred in the Netherlands for Canada 150 - 2017 - red and white and a hint of orange?
