The Butchart GardensGo to Slide Show



I lived in Victoria for 5 years but never visited the Butchart Gardens until after I moved to Vancouver.  Here are a few shots I like:

Single Flowers:

Tulip MessTulip on BlueSingle Daffodil

I'm not much of a fan of taking my tripod so most of these shots are hand held.

Bunches of Flowers:

DafodilsGrainy FlowersWater Drops
Iris's

What's so great about the Buchart gardens is how well the backdrops are maintained - it's very easy to isolate individual plants.

Places in Day:

BoarItalian GardensS-Bend of Tulips
Sunken Gardens

Lots of cool things and scenes in the gardens.
 

Places at Night:

Sunken at NightTree and Fountain

The lights are on over the christmas period and they are spectacular.  The gardens set up a 13 days of Christmas around the grounds (I think they only have up to seven right now), so there is a directed walk of things to see.

Places at Night in the Snow:

Fountain In Snow
Village Walk
Village From Distance

It so rarely snows in Victoria, it's a privilege to see the gardens covered in snow.  Of course they are difficult to present on a computer, but you get the idea.

I took some new pictures on my Nanaimo trip.  Go have a look!
