Our first objective was to visit the

Butchart Sunken Gardens.

After nearly two hours were on the high road… 

and the Sunken Gardens were below us.


Another feature of Butchart Gardens was that

we were able to walk below some of the plants

and photograph the foliage.

Didn’t realise I had chosen bushes

as my topic from Week 1.

So more Victorian (BC) bushes.

 I think this is an azalea bush,

although I have never sighted one as big as this. 

They don’t like our climate. 

And if, like me, you are having difficulty

seeing the blooms they were 

past their best but still note worthy.

Visitors to Victoria BC will find this garden 

to the right of the Empress Hotel.

The Orca bush I will call this. 

Am fairly certain it is topiary…at it’s best. 

Please correct me if I’m wrong and it’s not a real plant 




Row is a peculiar word…isn’t all the English language?

  Depending on context and pronunciation,

it can mean…

an argument,

propelling a boat manually through/across water, or

a line of things.

I focus on the latter two meanings this week.Row(ers) on the River Ouse in York with

rows of Redboats in the background

I don’t own shares in Woollies,

but a supermarket is a great place for rows of trolleys.


I think these rubbish bins were in

the same Victorian town.

Some of Geelong’s Bollards, lined up to save lives.

Rows of seats in my local movie theatre.


These bollards are to be found at Docklands

where the ferry docks in Melbourne.
