Let’s Visit The Butchart Gardens, Vancouver Island, Canada

Thanks to Faith Kaskisto we are able to visit The Butchart Gardens near Victoria, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

Once a Limestone quarry for Robert Butchart’s cement production, the property was transformed in 1909 by his wife, Jennie, into the Sunken Garden.
