As I promised in my last post I am going to take you for a short walk through the Butchart Gardens.
Let's go for a walk and admire the varieties of trees and bushes.
There is something new around every corner.
We need to remeber to look up, or else we will miss the sight of a beautiful Fuchsia....
...and to listen for water.
Speaking of water, here is one of my favorite water feature in the gardens...Yes, dogs are welcome and I saw many strolling through the gardens with their owners.
There were places to sit and enjoy the surroundings and to notice the play of light, shadow and reflection on the water.
There were a number of Japanese lanterns in the Japanese Style Garden...this one was keeping company with the Blue Poppy.
An then as one walks around another corner, there is a vista of breathtaking proportions.
Then just as you catch your breath and turn around and look up....there is the majestic red wood.
There are things to smile at...a tree, tree helper, made from cement.
There are questions...Is this a Scabiosa aka Pincushion Flower ? Please tell me if you know.
Then there is time for a delicious Afternoon Tea in the former Butchart residence.
