Butchart Gardens ~ The Sunken Gardens

I have so many photos from Butchart Gardens that I’d like to share so I’m dividing them into a few posts for the different areas of the Gardens. The first area we visited were the Sunken Gardens…






Katie was really intrigued by the Chilean Rhubarb that grows 6-10 feet tall. I zoomed way in to try to capture it. Katie is sure you could float down a river on one of the leaves! :0)





You have to work real hard to get a photo without 10 people you don’t know in it at Butchart. It’s a very popular destination and after visiting we can understand why. I’ll show more flowers from other parts of the garden soon.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  2. beautiful beautiful gardens ellen…thank you for showing us! And the food in the previous and next posts is wonderful too! Ymm…
    Thanks also for your visit to my skies today!

  3. We were there in Sept, after dark, and there were fewer people around. The lights on the dancing water fountains were beautiful! But you couldn’t take good photos of it in the dark.

  4. I’ve been to Butchart Gardens twice now, and both times I simply had my breath taken away as you look into the quarry the first time and see all that magnificent color. I would love to go back again some day. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful photos with us, brought back lots of wonderful memories.

  5. I have so enjoyed your tour of Butchart Gardens…a most beautiful place. We almost crossed paths there…not quite. We are just finishing up our vacation on Vancouver Island…and I will have lots to post once I’m back at home (with reliable internet connections!).
