    What a beautiful garden, George. This must be so wonderful to see!

  • It really is Mike, I have a series showing this garden from all sides, it’s very big, but I have to post one at a time due to the limitations. Just thought..I’ll post to the Fibronacci Sequence, I can do 5 in a row. Sometimes I get an idea. No often. LOL!

    Lovely, George. In the ten years we lived in victoria and Nanaimo we never went to Butchart’s Gardens once!

  • That’s often the way it is..I had relatives in Toronto that lived there over 35 years and had never seen Niagara Falls until I took them! We’re lucky,the gardens are just down the road from here.

    A beautiful shot and garden x

  • I wish too, Irene, but nobody has less of a green thumb than I do! But those gardens have been going since 1904 so they’ve had lots of time to get it!
