BUTCHART GARDENS

In 1904, Jenny Butchart began making small flower gardens beside her house, which was next to her husbands cement business. The gardens grew and when the cement business was finished, her gardens took over the land where it had been. Eventually totaling 55 acres, she hired professional help and created a sight to behold!

The many paths take you to a waterfall, a perfect storybook pond with swans gliding the glassy surface, Rose gardens and arbors, heavy with fragrant blossoms of every color imaginable. There are thousands of different species of flowers and trees, many are exotic. There is enough color to make your head spin.

My daughter and son-in-law took me to Butchart Gardens in June of 1993. It was one of the highlights of my life.
If you are ever in the area, I hope you will take a peek. It is one of those sights that will stay with you.
