    Dominion Arboretum - Ottawa

    I spent about 30 or 40 minutes wandering around the Dominion Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm late this afternoon. Many of the trees were in bloom; and lots of other people were out enjoying this very special time of the spring.

    Pond that connects to the Rideau Canal. If one looks carefully, there are a couple of kayaks making their way from Dow's Lake / Rideau Canal into the pond.

    What a beautiful place. And well represented in these images. I particularly like the second shot for the composition, mix of foliage, the sky, and the included human component. Nice job.
