I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

George Cousins

North Saanich,British Columbia, Canada

Artist's Description

Maybe not, but from the look on her face, he’s going to have a hard time convincing her! Especially since she’s in the midst of one of the biggest and most beautiful Rose Gardens in the entire world! This is a very tiny part of the world-famous Butcharts Gardens in Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Now over 100 years old and a National Historic Site of Canada, there is an Italian,Japanese,Mediteranean,Sunken and Rose Garden. This one has over 250 different species of Roses, and is the only section where the plants are labeled.
This little girl was quite enchanted with the pathways (if not the roses) and her little brother was trying to control her. As soon as I saw them, the title flashed through my mind and I grabbed the image. Seemed too good to miss!
