There are few flowers out at Sweetman’s Garden right now, but lots of photographs are available.
In another week the place will be blooming!
Tulips in Sweetman’s Garden.
The tulips are ready in Sweetman’s Garden.
The tulips are blooming in The Heritage Gardens on the Waterfront.
Best go see them before it’s over for this year.
Sweetman’s Garden provides lush opportunities for colour.
The Autochrome process holds interest for me in that it was a major method of producing colour photographs at the beginning of the 1900’s and was not supplanted until Kodachrome arrived on the scene.
The process produces colour photographs containing rich but muted colours. The effect can be a bit surreal and dreamlike sometimes but quite satisfying.
One can attempt to duplicate the process using Photoshop.
There are a few tutorials online which are fun to work with. I am attempting to develop my own.
Sweetman’s Garden comes through once again.
A celebration of renewal happens there every spring.
Spectacular when back-lit.
The Heritage Gardeners do great work on the Waterfront.
The gardens on the Waterfront are just beginning to bloom. Early tulips and Daffodils will be followed shortly with many other of the wonderful mix of plants that theVolunteer Gardeners care for.
Can’t resist them!
For a little while longer.
The tulips are also showing off in Sweetman’s Garden in North Bay.
Soon the lupins will be along!
A bunch of photos from the Ottawa Tulip Festival.
The tulip festival provided great colour.
It is a pleasant thought that these flowers are here instead of the foundations of houses.
