Come With Me
Are you still in a snowdrift where you live? Then do a virtual escape with me to Butchart Gardens outside Victoria, British Columbia. If someone granted me the privilege to live over one day of our 39 day cross country trip that Jack and I took last year, this is the place I would want to be. It would be a day spent walking, looking, photographing and just sitting to absorb the beauty of Butchart Gardens which I think is the most beautiful garden in North America, maybe even of all the world. I do like it better than the Japanese Gardens of Kyoto and the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens of Holland and The Tivoli Gardens of Italy. You can spend the better part of a day here and you can buy food and eat lunch under one of those cafe tables while admiring the blossoms, birds and bees nearby. Canadians should be very proud of this magnificent place. Click on photos for a better view of the flowers.
