Canada: An Evening stroll through Butchart Gardens.

On Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada is the world-renowned Butchart Gardens. While in Victoria during the summer we took a forty-five minute bus ride from the town centre north to the gardens. It was raining upon arrival, but that just added to the beauty we saw. I’ll let the pictures and various gardens and colors speak for themselves. Chess anyone?!

There is more floral and colorful beauty then you can imagine at this hundred year old family owned gardens. Throughout you’ll find activities like fireworks, concerts, ice skating and more no matter the season. Being there in the evening we had the chance to experience the gardens in daylight and darkness, each giving off a different, beautiful feel.

Checkout the Butchart Gardens website. They are in the middle of The Magic of Christmas right now. From what I have heard from others, it’s a must visit during the holiday season. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Are there any other gardens you would recommend seeing that you have come across in your travels?
