The Budding Tulips in Ottawa

Last weekend, we went to the Canadian Tulip Festival, a yearly tradition whose reason I just learned about (hey Canadian History class in high school was designed to be ultra boring, but I love history, I do!) “It preserves the local heritage of Canada’s role in freeing the Dutch during World War II, and the symbolic tulip; a gift in perpetuity to the Canadian people for providing a safe harbour to the Dutch Royal Family at that time.”

So now you know too :)

And now enjoy the few photos I took. We also picked up some huge lollipops!
