Walk through Butchart Gardens





A walk through Butchart Gardens near Victoria, BC, Canada on a beautiful Spring day was totally delightful.
 I felt like the pictures would speak today for me.
The gardens just took my breathe away.

Your photos of the beautiful Butchart Gardens are great. I loved seeing the totem poles, espalier vines, water features, etc. and all the beautiful flowering plants.

Oh man, am I ever jealous!!! I could do a month's worth of post just on the pictures alone. I will have to go back and ponder each one.

The gardens are gorgeous. Our daffodils are just starting to bud out.

I've spent way too much time on your blog this morning and enjoyed every minute! The lovely gardens, tea at the Empress and your Canon Rebel adventures. Did you sit in that chair by the sea? With a wonderful book?

Thanks for a nice visit.

Best,
Bonnie

Thank you for the walk-about, Marilyn! This did my spirit good, for it has been chilly, gray and rainy for some days here...not at all spring-like or blooming! That white cascade of wisteria is breathtaking...*swoon*... Happy Day :o) ((HUGS))

Breathtakingly beautiful... this is exactly the sort of image I have of Victoria. I always have this strong desire to inhale and reach out to touch with visuals as powerfully evocative as these. Thank you for sharing!
