It was over forty years…

…since I first heard of Butchart Gardens.

The wait was well worth it.

 

 

The floral displays were…

…simply gorgeous…

 

 

…and all parts…

 

 

…of the gardens…

…were immaculately cared for.

My favourite places.

Locally it has to be Griffin Gully Pier

over looking Geelong’s

Corio Bay.

I missed out on visiting Butchart Gardens in 1976.

The wait was long but certainly worth it

when we visited in 2018.

 

Accommodation during my 1976 visit to Banff

consisted of a sleeping bag and a small tent.

Forty-two years later and a lot more comfort

and more memories

Just read your post Terri and realised

there was a reason why you chose ‘green’ 😄

I may be stretching the terms

doors and doorways this week.

Still in Canada’s

Vancouver Island.

Still in the Butchart Gardens,

this first image is a doorway leads us to

the Japanese Garden.

 

The gateway between old and new

Chemainus (presumably).

 

Finally, a fair dinkum doorway

taken from our horse and carriage

ride around Victoria.

The Ross Fountain in the Butchart Gardens.

It reminded me of a mini version of

the Dubai Mall Fountain

Victoria Harbour….

…just on…

 

…night fall.

 

I didn’t think of it at the time, however…

….I really wish I had taken a ride

on the H2O Taxi…just for fun.
