This is the fifth in a series of five images taken in the Sunken Garden at the Butchart Gardens in Victoria,British Columbia,Canada. The sunken garden was once a huge limestone pit, and when the limestone was exhausted, work began in 1904 to convert it into a beautiful garden. The small lake shown here was filled from natural springs at the bottom of the pit, and stocked with fish which would come to the surface to be fed when Mr. Butchart clapped his hands. The 55 acres of gardens are a National Historic Site of Canada, famous the world over.
