Tulip Festival at the Royal Botanical Gardens

On Sunday I did a stint of volunteering along with Marg, for the Master Gardeners, at the Tulip Festival at the Royal Botanical Gardens which lies on the Burlington - Hamilton border. The weathermen threatened us with rain and thundershowers all day but we stayed dry at the RBG. The tulip festival takes place at the Rock Garden, a large sunken garden with a wonderful assortment of trees and ,yes, tulips. Almost a riotous variety of colour as the photos will tell. Also on display are all the cherry trees which were in full bloom this weekend. The air sent wafts of fragrance from the trees all around us. Wonderful.             



Many thanks to Barry who took these lovely photos. Barry is Marg's husband.
