I was lucky enough to visit Butchart Gardens in Spring when it was in full flower.  At times the scent could be overwhelming. There were many flower beds full of Tulips and an assortment of other flowers.  A lot of work has gone into creating and maintaining these beautiful gardens.

Flowering Cherry white and pink


I no longer need to go to Japan to see the Flowering Cherry as they were flowering all over Vancouver and Vancouver Island.


Having travelled extensively since a young child, I am now looking to share my experiences while indulging in my travel passions of castles, dinosaurs, trains, and UNESCO sites. I also want to show that you can travel safely and easily on your own. When I am not travelling, I am an IT Project Manager.


  1. Great photos of all the gardens. Think some of your flower titles are incorrect -will advise you elsewhere. If I don’t put you right, Marylin will!!!
