Butchart Gardens for Today's Flowers
A little shot of the Butchart Gardens for Today's Flowers. Imagine if you were presented with the problem of a huge empty, ugly old sunken limestone quarry that your husband just left abandoned beside the house....what to do? Well Jennie decided to fill it with wagon loads of soil and plants and that is how this wonderful lush sunken garden started. Now it has 55 acres of flowers and shrubs of all kinds and is a National Historic Site of Canada. Here is a link to their site Butchart Gardens for more photos. It is one of the most amazing wonders of the world now.
