We were lucky enough to visit Vancouver a couple of years ago. During the holiday we bought tickets for a day trip to to Vancouver Island, it included a tour of Victoria and a visit to the stunning Butchart Gardens.
The gardens are truly remarkable and a tribute to Jennie Butchart, whose vision and dedication over 100 years ago have produced a paradise for gardeners and photographers alike. I hadn’t heard of them before and if you haven’t either, you can find more information here
I’ve posted a few photos into the gallery below, to give you an idea of the beauty of the place.

We had a really enjoyable day in the gardens, then visited the shop where I bought a few souvenirs to bring home. If you ever get the opportunity to visit Butchart Gardens take it, and your camera, you won’t be disappointed.
