One of my passions is photographing flowers, so it was inevitable that while on vacation that I kept my camera handy although it was a painful procedure with my broken wing. I do slow a walk down because there is another Kodak moment at every turn. Here are a few of my favourite pics.
Over 100 years ago young Jennie Butchart began her love of flower gardens with a package of Sweet Pea seeds and a rose bush. Today over 50 acres of world renown theme gardens display flower beds, shrubs, hedges, trees, ponds, fountains, and so much more to fill the visual sense with stunning vistas at every turn in the maze of pathways. It is impossible to capture it all on camera although most everyone tries, but rather one needs to appreciate the whole setting and hold the beauty with memories.
Dahlias to make me smile.
A Zinnia bed that I would love in my garden.
Hypericum blooms like a fiber optic show.
Sunflowers must be sweet.
The Italian Garden in front of the
original Butchart residence.
We stayed in the gardens till evening and after a delightful Italian Jazz concert wandered through the gardens again that were magically illuminated with romantic ambiance.
