Canadian Firefighters Memorial, May 19, 2014

Here's the Canadian Firefighters Memorial on Victoria Day, 2014. There is some vigorous growth in some of the landscaping while in other areas it looks like the plants are struggling and in some places expired. While I was there taking these pictures I saw someone come to pay their respects.

I tend to circle the memorial site in a clockwise direction. When the memorial was under construction I parked to the south and the south west corner was where I started taking pictures. Now I have to park on the street, so I tend to start at the north east corner.

I took photographs early on in the site's construction and they are posted on this blog site. If you haven't seen them I recommend that you go looking for them. It may take some looking around on the site but I think it will be worth your while.

You can see a number of seats arranged here. This area was designed to be a place where people could got and sit in quiet contemplation at the site.

It looks like the plants that were put in on this hill did not do well over the winter.

I try to go to the memorial at two week intervals now. I see from looking at the dates the last set of pictures were taken about a month ago. The next set should be early in June.
