Christmas Lights at Butcharts

Just a few of the lights at Butchart Gardens. We went there the other night and they have thousands of lights, caroling and a skating ring and many displays.  It is their 25th year of celebrating the  magic of Christmas. Hope everyone is having a great holiday.  This is almost wordless so it is for
Wordless Wednesday where there are many more wordless people.


  1. What a magical and beautiful display. I am glad they have thought of something to augment the summer, high season takings. Those gardens are so expensive to keep up. Delightful to go skating and have hot chocolate in such surroundings.. A beautiful post.

    I wish you a most wonderful New Year!

  2. trekking your lovely blog!!! thanks for sharing and keep posting! Happy New Year!


  3. That would be magical. I have seen the gardens in summer,but Christmas would be a wonderful time to visit them.

  4. thanks so much for your comments.
