Butchart Gardens–The Sunken Garden

Photograph of the Sunken Garden at the Butchart Gardens, British Columbia, CanadaWe recently visited the Butchart Gardens near Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The gardens are justifiably world-famous. They are a wonder of color, variety and harmony. In 2004 the gardens were designated a National Historic Site of Canada. The 5 different gardens cover 55 acres, much of which is the site of a limestone quarry that supplied Mr. Butchart’s cement business.
