Mosaic Monday - Our Capital City

I had a pleasant time in Ottawa last week
 and thought I would show you some of the sights.



Ottawa is the captial of Canada and every May they host a Tulip Festival.
There are tulips in planters on the downtown streets,
 around the Parliment Buildings and in park beds.
Please join Mary at Little Red House to
enjoy more wonderful mosaics.

Lovely mosaic with the tuplips and scenes of Ottawa. It's a long way from Texas, and I'll probably never get to see the sights in person. Thanks for sharing. It's beautiful there. Hope you can make it to Texas to see some of our wildflowers...Sue

Hello - Thanks for stopping by to comment on my blog. I'm looking forward to seeing your posts. I have a few tulips and lilies but the deer are hungry this year again - I've almost given up. I hope you have a chance to visit Paris and one day I hope to visit Ottawa!

Ottawa is a beautiful city and so clean. I went years ago and I loved it there.

Meri said...

Ottawa looks beautiful. I've been to British Columbia and Calgary, but no farther east in the provinces. I love historic buildings, so naturally the spire in your collage grabbed my attention. Thanks for the travelogue.
