Visit to Butchart Gardens
The rose gardens, with tall delphiniums in the background, are one of my favourite places. The roses tumble over arbours and metal structures like the one above, or they stand proudly as individual bushes.
Their colour and form are stunning. And I like the way the garden has the roses all labeled. You would think I would remember the name of this rose, but sadly, I don't.
The old Butchart home is now offices and a restaurant. The windows are shaded by charming awnings and beautiful flower boxes add their colour.
If you ever come to Victoria, visiting Butchart Gardens should be on your list of sites to see!
