Butchart Gardens…8

Something totally unexpected at…

Butchart Gardens…

Victoria, Vancouver Island…

British Columbia…

Canada.

The carousel was just like ones I remember

from my childhood, although

in much better condition.

And, yes it was a fun to break

in our walk around the gardens

and give it a whirl.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Delicate

~~~~~~

 

I turned to nature for most of

my delicate photos this week.All photos from Butchart Gardens,

Vancouver Island.


I’m fairly certain it would take a delicate touch

to rake this gravel so  neatly

A few years ago MGW decided we needed

a Japanese Garden style garden bed…

complete with raked gravel such as above.

With as light as touch as I could muster I raked our gravel.

Re-raking several times when necessary.

As we stood back to admire our handy work

Maggie (our ageing Labrador) decided to join us.

I believe all dogs should be named ‘Electricity’ .

Why?

Because they take the shortest route between two points.

 Maggie was no different.

Directly from the concrete verandah across

our freshly raked Japanese Garden bed, to our side.

We have a near new rake for sale if anyone wants one!!

Wits-End-Weekly-Prompt-Moving-Water

 

Although most of these photos are from

Vancouver Island we found plenty

of moving water in Canada.

Fountain outside Legislative Assembly Building,

Victoria, Vancouver Island.

 

This snail fountain can be found just inside

the Butchart Gardens gate.

Jumping to Alberta and Banff’s

Cascade Gardens provides this waterfall.

Known for its murals, Chemainus can be

discovered on Vancouver Island.

Finally, possibly my favourite Canadian fountain is the

Ross Fountain in the Butchart Gardens,

Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Finally, maybe a slightly different take on moving water.

We had to cross what seemed to be a fairly narrow path

each time we entered/exited our hotel in Victoria, BC.

The Parkside has some huge fish in this pond.
