With fall and winter settling in part of the country.....today I wanted to show you some of the beautiful photos from Butchart Gardens....in British Columbia on Vancouver Island. We had a home up in the Pacific Northwest for 15 years and visited this beautiful spot whenever we were able. It was always a must see when we had visitors to the island.
The gardens were originally planted in the bottom of an old lime quarry....and over the years it has grown and grown in to the magnificent spot it is today.
It is open year round ...... these are shots taken one summer several years back.
You are able to visit the gardens over Christmas as well....when everything is awash in twinkly lights. We have not done this....but hope to someday.
Some of these shots were taken inside the wonderful restaurant they have on the premises.
I've said this before and I will say it again....I think the garden's in Canada are some of the most beautiful in the world.
If you ever get a chance to visit British Columbia....this spot is just outside Victoria and is worth the visit.
Let's all embrace beauty where ever we find it.
I know.....I'm a little out of sync here...but came across these photos while getting organized at home and I just had to share this beauty! (O:
