Canadian tulip festival

The Canadian tulip festival is underway here in Ottawa, Ontario.  Currently the largest tulip festival in the world, it runs from May 12 to 23 this year. These spectacular pictures were taken by a talented friend.  I could not decide which one was the most beautiful so am posting them all:

This last picture is of a purple trillium, our provincial flower here in Ontario.  Although the white version is much more common, purple trilliums are popping up everywhere too this spring :
