Immediately upon arriving to Victoria, BC I asked our host about her “must-visit places” on the island. Butchart Gardens was number one place and she said that it full of small gardens and exotic flowers. I brought my DSLR camera and was ready to photograph it all!
So we headed out for a 20 minute drive from the downtown Victoria to the Butchart Gardens.
The history behind this place is truly fascinating as it started as a limestone quarry transformed over 100 years by Jennie Butchart into beautiful gardens. You can read more about it here.
