Ottawa’s best public gardens: Ornamental Gardens at the Central Experimental Farm

By Kelly McDonald on July 21, 2020



This is the first in a series of photo galleries that Ottawa photographer Kelly McDonald is creating for Apt613 this summer to showcase the beautiful public gardens around our city. Get inspired, get out there and enjoy the beauty our city has to offer in this brief season!

The early morning garden. Birds greet the day with vigour and song. The soft wind tags the evergreen hedges. Dew clings to blades. In the distance, the buzz of commuting vehicles. Meandering bees and brightly coloured possibilities. Mid-summer. The wakening garden. The new world.
