Any future visit to Canada would…

…have to include a morning at…

…the Butchart Sunken Gardens…

…on Vancouver Island.

A bit closer to home is…

…the Hamilton Gardens…

…in New Zealand’s North Island.

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’ 😄
