Spring Ahead

For Mellow Yellow Monday ...

With up to 35 centimetres (13.78 inches) of snow forecast for our area overnight and into tomorrow, I thought I'd focus on the positive: Spring is coming. Eventually. In the meantime, I figured these colourful tulips were a hopeful reminder of what lies ahead. These photos were taken last year at the Ottawa Tulip Festival.


There really were tulips as far as you could see. Thousands and thousands. Very beautiful.
