Italian Garden at the Butchart Gardens by 

One of several theme gardens which form part of the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Originally this part of the family estate was a tennis court, I believe, but as the Gardens developed, it was transformed into this replica of an Italian estate garden, with fountains, sculptures, shallow pools and myriads of flowers.
In bloom since 1904, the Gardens are a National Historic Site of Canada.

    What a wonderful bit of colour to start my new day George! It would be a joy to walk round those gardens with camera in hand. Great work old buddy.

  • Hi Peter, glad I was able to give you some cheer! Well, you’d walk around Butcharts and when you filled all your memory cards you’d come back another day and do it all over! It’s an incredible place for guys like us :)
    Take care,

    Please consider adding this to All Glorious Gardens. This is a wonderful image!

  • I ticked it when I posted it Marilyn, I was sure you’d like it. I just checked and the tick is there, in All Glorious Gardens. Didn’t it get there?
    Second thought, I’ll untick and tick again..see if that does the trick.
    We’ll all have a ticking good time..LOL!!!!
