Butchart Gardens

Yesterday was another lovely, sunny day so we decided to visit Butchart Gardens.

It was surprisingly busy for a Monday. I cannot even imagine what it is like during the summer months.

I took lots and lots of photos of flowers but am only going to post this breath-taking shot of the sunken gardens.

I'm guessing it's a major employer for the area - and not just students. The last time we were here was in the spring. This time many roses were in bloom and the chrysanthemum beds were just starting to bloom. We were impressed with the dahlias of every shape and size and many plants we usually only see in the south like bamboo, crotons, azaleas, rhododendrons, etc.

It was a very pleasant way to spend the day.
