~The Butchart Gardens~

Out visit to Butchart Gardens in Victoria, Canada was amazingly beautiful!. I don't know if the pictures can due it justices. The colors of all the plants were so vibrant. I hope you enjoy the pictures, you can click to enlarge any photo if you like.




















At the end of our day Mom and I went off to shop Gary and Dad sat outside waiting for us, while the men waited patiently, Gary saw this little dog wearing sunglasses the dog actually left them on and was use to wearing them the owner told Gary.. Way to cute!

I always enjoy the "peeks through" shots...through a gate...through a window...just wonderful. This is one incredible garden, but then you were out there in God's Country. That little dog wearing sunglasses is the cutest thing!

Oh Elizabeth!! These photos are divine...I mean really!! I have several favorites!! The view through the shutters, through the arch which looks like you're peeping through a keyhole, the circle of birds, and the big overview in the beginning!!

Just lovely!! You captured the feel of the gradens well!! What delicious eye candy for those who love nature like me!!

Thanks so much!!
Blessings and hugs,
Becky

How beautiful the gardens are, from the photos they look huge. It must have taken a while to walk through it. I would just be stopping all the time to just stand and look, and smell. OH how I would love to have my yard look like that..... Thanks so much for sharing them. I can't wait to see the Tea ones... I love that little doggy sooooooo sweet..

What a gorgeous garden! I have never heard of it before, but will have to put this on my list of places to visit!

That fish my husband caught was on his first salmon fishing trip.
