The Butchart Gardens is a group of floral display gardens located near Victoria on Vancouver Island. These gardens, which were originally the site of a large quarry, receive over a million visitors each year and have been designated as a national historic site.
My nephew has worked amid these gorgeous gardens for many years, and he occasionally sends me a photo or two.

This is a Penticton, British Columbia photo from last summer. I’ll be heading back for some holidays in about six weeks, and I’m starting to miss it a lot.
Happy Sunday, happy home.
