Tip toe through the tulips

I’ll be too late to see the tulips in Holland, but I got my tulip fix at the Ottawa festival this past week, where the tulip beds at Dow’s Lake explode into a kaleidoscope of color.

The royal Dutch family sends 10,000 bulbs to Ottawa each year as a thank you for sheltering their princess during the 2nd World War. Her daughter, Princess Margriet, was born here at the Civic Hospital.
