Butchart Gardens – Spring 2016




We can only imagine what paradise would be like.  A springtime visit to Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada is a feast for the senses.  The sheer variety of plants and scents is overwhelming.  They say one should visit the gardens several times over the year to enjoy the plants that bloom in the different seasons. According to the official website “over a million bedding plants in some 900 varieties give you uninterrupted bloom from March through October”.

You can visit the gardens’ official website here:   butchartgardens.com

You can learn about the history of the Butchart family who began this garden from an abandoned quarry.  Now internationally famous, the gardens have been designated as a National Historic Site of Canada.

    So exquisite! Beautiful testimony to Jehovah’s creatorship. We remember our visit to the gardens a few years back. We were enthralled. You have access to the changing scenery there, whenever you want. Happy for you.
