Experimental Farm w/Figmas

In my hunt for more Cherry Blossoms I saw that the Experimental Farm had a few in their garden. Also brought my Figmas with me just to even out the Ottawa scenery bits with a bit of Anime-ness. The Experimental Farm is a vast open space to experiment with crops and such. There is no way you can miss it as it covers a large portion of Ottawa.

What is the Experimental Farm?

As I always take pictures of Mud Lake, Britannia Beach, and Andrew Haydon park I thought a change of scenery was needed. It is a spot that both locals and tourists should visit whenever they get a chance as it is a nice place to unwind or to admire.

There is no way you can simply waltz around Ottawa without spotting some part of this farm, heh.

I’m not sure but this appears to be a flight to Frankfurt? It looked bigger then any other plane flying before or after it. Congrats on flying once more! It took off to the North then made a quick turn to the East.

    Really cool pictures, looks like a great place to get nature shots :3 I need to get up and out and find a nice park or something once the onslaught of Spring storms let up here. Why do they close the roads, too much snow/ice?

    I would assume that it would be closed by the snow/ice combo. Not much to do in the winter except to snow shoe and ski in that area.
