Butchart Gardens

If you ever visit Vancouver Island in British Columbia one of the highlights is a day at Butchart Gardens near Victoria. The gardens have been designated as a National Historic Site of Canada and the floral displays are spectacular! The gardens were conceived by the Butchart family as a series of beautiful outdoor living rooms. The first garden to be completed in 1920 was the Sunken Garden, which was formed in a depleted limestone quarry. Soon after the family transformed their tennis court into an Italian Garden and their kitchen vegetable garden into a large rose garden. Today there are 55 acres of perfectly manicured gardens, more than 900 different varieties of plants and 50 full time gardeners.

Make a cup of tea and sit back to enjoy this visual treat!
