The Butchart Chronicles : November 7, 2014

“Paradise of the West Coast”

Autumn at The Butchart Gardens
Visited the gardens at the height of the fall season. The gardens scattered throughout the estate are beautiful and beyond description without a visit. Each garden is immaculately maintained and each has a theme of sorts. Flora from around the world is abundant. The colors were spectacular and rivaled the colors one sees in New England during the fall. The carousel is something to see (and ride if you so choose) since its characters are nicely presented. There is a nice gift shop where one can purchase some of the flowers grown in the gardens and other memorabilia. A photographer's delight since the colors are so natural and the lighting changes form garden to garden.
