Only one problem:
|No dogs allowed. Even on a leash.|
But we didn't see that sign until we had already been in the park for about 20 minutes, so I managed to snap some pictures of Ottawa's annual festival.
|Forgot to snap a picture of the name of this one.|
|China Pink, Elegant Lady, and Mariette|
|Salmon Expression and Marit|
|Another picture of Salmon Expression and Marit|
I snapped these two as I was scurrying out of the park.
It hadn't been much of a walk, so we made our way to the Arboretum, which is part of the Experimental Farm, where we saw this.
|Yay! Dogs allowed!|
Spring was vibrantly alive in the arboretum as well, with all the fruit trees and spireas showing their colours.
I love willows - and the delicate green of their spring leaves.
I also love this guy. He won't pose for pictures, but every so often, I manage to snap one of him being still enough that he isn't just a blur. (In this case, he was watching someone approach who commended Kane on his good behaviour.)
|Happy, happy dog.|
Spring is here! It was long coming, but worth waiting for.
