Vancouver Island is a constant source of inspiration for our featured artist during opening weekend at The Gallery.  Alanna is a self-taught artist inspired by the inherent beauty of the natural world, Alanna is drawn to the extraordinary in the ordinary.  “My artwork aims to reveal the beautiful in the everyday, the strength in the fragile, the perfection in the imperfection, and the connection between the human spirit and the natural world”.

blog_AlannaSparanese3_gallery2017.jpg
Working with the encaustic medium and incorporating mixed media, she captures feeling and emotion on canvas, reflected in luminous layers and enticing textures.  Finding the medium both exciting and versatile to work with, Alanna uses various elements of interest; collage, transfer, photographs, drawings and written material.  Oil paints, dry pigments and oils sticks are used to create the desired colour palette of choice and from there her vision is transformed with molten layers of pigmented wax to give a luscious depth and transparent luminosity to her pieces. 
See Alanna at work during her demonstrations at The Gallery on opening weekend.

Alanna Sparanese demonstrations from 12-3pm on April 1st & 2nd.

NEWS RELEASE

FOR RELEASE MARCH 22ND, 2017 

THE BUTCHART GARDENS DISCONTINUES SALE OF
SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES

Move will eliminate 80,000 single-use plastic water bottles each year from the environment 

March 22nd, 2017 Victoria, B. C. – In recognition of World Water Day, The Butchart Gardens has removed the sale of all single-use plastic water bottles as an extension of their existing environmental practices. Instead, The Gardens is encouraging visitors to bring their own water bottles to fill at one of four double-filtered water stations located around The Gardens. Each water station boasts a drinking fountain, bottle filler and a doggy water dish.

“With this initiative we aim to drive awareness of the serious threat plastic poses to our environment, in particular single-use plastic water bottles,” said Bob Parrotta, Director of Food Services for The Butchart Gardens. “We have chosen today to announce our new direction in an effort to bring attention to World Water Day which is marked on 22nd of March every year. It’s a day to celebrate water and to prepare for how we manage water in the future.”

According to Ottawa’s Polaris Institute, bottled water is 240 – 10,000 times more expensive than tap water and the amount of oil used for the production of bottled water in 2010 was the equivalent to putting 1 million cars on the road.

Forgot your water bottle? The Butchart Gardens will have reusable ‘keepsake’ water bottles for sale for $3.00, the cost of purchasing a single-use serving.

The Butchart Gardens is an internationally renowned 55-acre (22 hectare) display garden located near Victoria, British Columbia. Created in 1904 by Jennie Butchart, and still privately owned and operated by family descendants, The Gardens has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada and welcomes over one million visitors a year.

Flower and Garden Report March 16 - March 22, 2017

Written by Rick Los, Director of Horticulture

I’m quite happy to be home after a week in Toronto promoting our garden at Canada Blooms which is Canada’s largest indoor flower and garden show. I won’t mention the weather, because up until the time we visited they were experiencing a milder winter than what we were dealing with here at the Gardens.

That being said, the garden has sprung to life in the past week and there are signs of spring blossoming throughout the garden. We are truly blessed to be gardening in a climate where the diversity and abundance of floral beauty provides you with a unique experience every single week of the year. The Rose Garden is particularly spectacular right now as tens of thousands of colourful crocuses blanket an area which only a week ago was barren ground.

The Spring Prelude display continues to inspire our visitors with its plethora of exotic plant material that accentuates the artistry of the plantings and garden features. The colourful plants on display in this indoor garden change on a weekly basis so you’re guaranteed to see something different if you happen to visit regularly.

Flower and Garden Report March 2 - March 15, 2017

Written by Rick Los, Director of Horticulture

If we have learned one thing this year, it’s patience! In all my years (almost 30) at the Gardens I do not recall such a reluctant start to spring. It certainly doesn’t help matters that last year at this time we were enjoying the blooms of the earliest tulips and the fragrance from the first Hyacinths!

Conditions this year have caused some of our gardeners to experience mild anxiety from early season floral depravation syndrome (ESFDS). There is hope however, as when you stroll around the gardens you will see the emerging foliage from tens of thousands of bulbs as they hesitantly expose themselves to the unseasonably cool temperatures.

All that being said, the garden is always inspiring and beautiful no matter what the season or the level of the floral display. At this time of the year the garden evokes a certain tranquil beauty that simply cannot be experienced during any other season. To be clear, there are many floral delights to be found, but you may have to look for them as they don’t necessarily come looking for you! 

Inside our Spring Prelude display it’s a completely different story as colour and fragrance abound. You will find everything from tropical delights to naturalized plantings that mirror what will (or should) be taking place in the garden when spring finally arrives. If the garden outdoors doesn’t provide enough inspiration – I promise that you will be inspired by what you find inside.

Flower and Garden Report for February 24 - March 2nd

Flower and Garden Report February 24th – March 2nd, 2017

Written by Rick Los, Director of Horticulture

early rhododendrons have started showing colour

In spite of the cooler than average temperatures the garden continues to (slowly) push out colour and this week the first crocuses began to appear; albeit a little reluctantly. The first of the early rhododendrons have started showing colour, but they also don’t seem to be in much of a hurry to come into full bloom – this is in complete contrast to last year when they were in bloom a full month earlier! This is a humbling business as we are continually reminded that despite our best efforts, we are completely subject to the whims of nature. 

The damage the garden sustained from the major snowfall couple of weeks ago has been completely cleaned up and once again I have to take my hat off to our amazing team of gardeners who work so hard to keep this garden in pristine shape. I would challenge anyone to try and find anything that looks even remotely out of place in the garden – I am humbled (a humbling week for me!) by our gardeners persistence and dedication to their work – they truly take a great deal of pride in this special place.   

Speaking of special places……we are heading into the last month of our fabulous indoor Spring Prelude garden display, so please come and check it out if you haven’t already done so – I guarantee that you will be impressed and inspired.   

One final note - this weekend we will be welcoming thousands of our local residents as they become ‘Tourists in their own Home Town’. We look forward to sharing the beauty of our early spring season with all of them as well as with every other visitor who happens to stop by.

Written by Rick Los, Director of Horticulture

We are done with snow, but unfortunately the snow is not quite done with us! There are still patches and piles of snow lingering from last week’s major snowstorm – especially in the shadier areas.  

This week, as the snow began to melt, we noticed that the stubborn patches of Narcissus that decided to start blooming in November just carried on like nothing happened at all. We also noticed a few patches of brilliant blue Scilla which hadn’t been in bloom before the snow started falling. The plants you see blooming in the garden at this time of year are tenacious and they naturally have the desire to persist in even the least desirable weather conditions.

There’s not much more that I can say about our indoor Spring Prelude garden display that hasn’t already been said, but I will add that the colour and fragrance has been particularly cherished over the past week as the outdoor garden was covered under a blanket of snow.    

In the coming week will be in Seattle with a small and colourful display to promote our garden at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. If you happen to be in Seattle between the 22nd and the  26th  of February, please come and stop by for a visit with us at our booth.

Flower and Garden Report: February 9 – February 15, 2017

Written by Rick Los, Director of Horticulture

We have received over 30 cm of snow during the past few days, but as I’m writing this, rain is falling and the snow is melting quickly. Our snow is typically wet and heavy and with the additional rain the load can be too much for many plants to bear. Through the course of these adverse conditions we have lost a couple of trees (nothing that is irreplaceable) and many plants have been damaged throughout the gardens.

With that being said, I would challenge any visitor to find any kind of damage remaining in the garden within the next week or so as our highly skilled gardeners work their magic through pruning and replanting any plants that have been impacted. We actually like to look at situations like this as opportunities where we can make improvements and perhaps even replant with plants that add more beauty to the garden than their predecessors provided.

The weather indoors has been much more conducive to gardening and the Spring Prelude display is in fine form with its dazzling array of colourful and fragrant plants. The contrast from the wintry outdoor garden to the warm and spring-like indoor garden is striking – perhaps even shocking! This garden will inspire you in many ways and we welcome you to come in and satisfy your cravings for spring as we patiently wait for the blanket of snow to disappear.
