Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, B.C.

If you love gardens and all the flowers, ponds and decor that go along with them...this is the place to go! When you visit I think you will find it hard to believe that this place used to be a quarry that made cement. When the quarry was exhausted of its cemement making material...it became this! I will post more photos in the days to come.



Below is information from the website:

Fifty-five acres of wonderful floral display are open to the public, offering spectacular views from the many paths that meander through the four main gardens. In 1904, Jennie Butchart began to beautify a worked-out quarry site left behind from her husband's pioneering efforts in the manufacture of portland cement. The family's commitment to horticulture and hospitality spans 100 years, and continues to delight visitors from all over the world. From the exquisite Sunken Garden to the charming Rose Garden, the gracious traditions of the past are still maintained in one of the loveliest corners in the world.

Here is a the website address to this wonderful place:
