Tulips celebrated in a Russell Ave. home and many Sandy Hill gardens

Michel Gauthier (above), who chairs/ directs the Canadian Garden Council, Gardens Ottawa, the International Garden Tourism Network and World Tulip Society, lives on Russell Avenue in Sandy Hill. New this season are murals on his gate and porch, created by Chris Seiler and Sarah Doll (below), creating a boisterous context for the landmark blue tulip on his porch. As you can see above, the tulip theme continues on walls, furnishings and decorations within. Terrific tulips. Michel!

Not to be outdone by the reproductions. the show of tulips in Sandy Hill gardens was ne plus ultra in 2021! Here is a glimpse of the show in some north end gardens.
