Every year in Ottawa, the Tulips Festival marks the return of warmth and longer daytime (and the moment where, in theory, you can finally wash and put your winter jacket away). Trust me, it’s a relief to see some colours and green grass after months of living in a snowy landscape.
I realize this may sound funny to the rest of the world… but tulips draw crowds here! I am not particularly into flowers (and I don’t have a green thumb, I can’t grow shit but a kid apparently) and even I enjoy the festival.
