Butchart Gardens photos

Here are a few photos from my trip to Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia. It's a fabulous garden, a restored quarry that was a labor of love for Mrs. Butchart. The feature part of the garden is the huge sunken garden, which is featured in the last six photos.

  1. Thanks for the Butchart garden photos--brought back fond memories of a trip nearly 25 years ago--I need to get back!
