Butchart Gardens, Victoria, BC

Keep your Bucket List handy (Deb), because you have to add this place to it. Vancouver Island is absolutely worth the ferry ride over from either Washington, US or Vancouver, BC. The capitol city is Victoria, which is a wonderful harbour town (spelled with a u in honor of the Canadians), and one of the most popular attractions nearby is Butchart Gardens. If you are at all moved by flowers, even in the slightest way, this huge multi-acre show garden will knock your socks off. Pick the day you visit carefully though, during the summer they put on an incredible fireworks show, but only on Saturday nights. Ali and I had to visit on a weekday, but a few years ago, my mom and I were able to spend the day there, have dinner and see the fireworks and it’s simply unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Ali is 100% moved by flowers, so there were hundreds of photos of our visit. We’ve tried to pare it down and only share the best, just enough to inspire.
