    Beautiful Butchart

    May 22, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    After hearing about this place over thirty years ago we were blessed with a perfect day for our visit. We seem to bring Brisbane sunshine and temps wherever we go!

    If you're into garden design, botanical names, people management and many other things, you would be in heaven. They know how to do gardens and tourists so well.

    Our trip covered the whole garden, taking over three hours and we just celebrated being here. Each section of the gardens, the colours, the design were a unique experience.

    Highlights were...
    The fluency of design
    Understanding how to make good feature gardens
    The way the crowds were managed
    The place was extremely well run
    Especially enjoyed the Japanese Garden and the glasshouse

    Sadly, six photos don’t do this place justice but it should never lessen the enjoyment and blessing of flowers and trees, their colour and design.

    Would we go back? Definitely, but at a different season - fall, early spring or winter time with snow. This place is a must-do on your bucket list!
