Tiptoe through Esquimalt’s tulips

Township receives 100 tulip bulbs to add colour to centennial celebrations in 2012

Come springtime next year, tulips may become Esquimalt’s unofficial flower.

Henry Sherwood, a Saanich resident and retired Esquimalt parks department supervisor, donated 100 tulip bulbs that were planted at Sailor’s Walk near the township’s Municipal Hall earlier this month.

The red tulips, which Sherwood ordered from a friend in Holland, are meant to add some colour to Esquimalt’s centennial year in 2012.
