Two beautiful Japanese gardens


I have now visited three Japanese gardens in three days. (Yay, back on the West Coast!)

The last one was a part of my excursions in this area with cousin Betty today, so I’ll include a couple photos tomorrow when I report on today’s activities. But I can’t not spend today’s post sharing the photos from the two beautiful gardens from the previous two days.

The first was at the Butchart. After soaking in the magic in the sunken garden, I meandered over to the other edge of the property to explore the Japanese garden.

I have visited probably at least three dozen Japanese gardens, all around the US and Canada, and I would rank this one in the top five. (It nearly rivals Portland’s.) Just an incredible place.

Then yesterday, on my bike ride down to Esquimalt from Central Saanich, at my hosts’ suggestion I stopped at the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, which contains a lovely Japanese garden tucked away in the back. If you ever find yourself in the Victoria area, I recommend stopping to visit.

I hope you enjoy the photos.
