Artist's Description

After the death of Jennie Butchart, the talent and imagination behind the Butchart Gardens in Victoria,Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the gardens largely reverted back to nature. In 1946, Ian Ross, the grandson of Jennie, decided to resurrect the gardens and bring them back to their former glory. His efforts and those of his family and descendants have made the Gardens into a world-famous attraction, and a National Historic Site of Canada. Near the site of the last limestone pit of the original quarry, Mr. Ross and his staff conceived the idea of a fountain, with constantly changing patterns of water, in a lush setting of forest and flowers. As the display changes so often, it’s necessary to take many photos to show the various patterns. This is just one of them.
