Butchart Gardens Victoria BC Canada


By NancyM


The Butchart Gardens in Victoria BC is a National Historic Site of Canada which began from a worked out lime quarry and covers 55 acres . Started by Jennie Butchart, the garden has been in bloom for 100 years.

I visited the Butchart gardens in May and thought members might be interested in seeing some photos.

Thankyou Nancy you brought back happy memories of our trip in 2009 although we were there in the summer.

So it was so nice to see in Spring.

A wonderful blog Nancy, thank you so much for taking us on your visit. I had never heard of this garden.
Be interesting to see it again in the Autumn (Fall)
Lots of ideas there for setting up small borders in a back garden here.
