Butchart Gardens

55 acres of gardens and 50 gardeners tending them.......Butchart Gardens is a kaleidoscope of colour and form.  The plants are not labelled for identification to keep things as natural looking as possible but a  flower and plant guide enables even a novice gardener to discern what they are looking at.   Join me as we wander through this magnificent place to see what's blooming the end of August.










I'll end our tour with this water feature that continuously changed shape in a pond below us.

  5. Judith, I have never been there. My mother and sister went and loved it. We have a beautiful garden here called Thanksgiving Point, just south of Salt Lake City. I haven't made it there this summer but need to go before they dig everything up.

    Of course, my favorite was the lavendar and cream day lily. What an unusual color. I can see we both love purple!
