Tulip time!

It's tulip time in Ottawa again. In the spirit of the Weather Network's fall leaf colour tracker, here's the tulip bloom indicator.

Happy tulip viewing! (Yes, I say that with the full understanding that it has been pouring rain for most of the middle weekend of the festival. That always seems to happen.)

How long do they usually last? We'll be in town the last weekend in May.

Well the festival will be over, and many tulips bloomed early or on time this year as far as I can tell, but I doubt they'll all be gone. The ones that bloom late, as some batches always do, should still be putting on a good face. :)
