Blooms in Butchart Gardens

Just a quick photo post today, this one from the famous Butchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia.  I liked the droplets of water speckling this tulip surrounded by dainty white flowers.IMG_5000In another section of the garden I saw these lovely two-toned flowers – something in the aster family.IMG_4939

One of Victoria’s best-known attractions, Butchart Gardens was created more than 100 years ago by Jennie Butchart in an exhausted limestone quarry that had been mined by her husband, Robert. It has grown into an extensive collection of gardens filled with color all year long. It is still owned by the descendants of Jennie and Robert Butchart.
