If you come to Canada

Follow my blog with bloglovin
 If you come to Canada make sure to visit The Butchart Gardens situated in Victoria on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Its a beautiful scenic ferry ride from the city of Vancouver.  On  the ferry boats you will see killer whales, snow covered mountains and the ocean dotted with small islands. While visiting Victoria dont miss the number one attraction:  The Butchart Gardens.  The Gardens have been designed to please the eye and generally delight the senses. It could be the pale green of emerging leaves in spring, complemented by brilliant pink or white flowers of trees; the dazzling bedding plants framed in by sweeping lawns, with the treat to the nose of a waft of a thousand scents of summer;  Here is a minute long video outlining what to expect during your visit:


I lived in Victoria for 2 years and cried when I left to return to Montreal.  I still miss it!
Today I joined the Today's Flowers blog hop.

  2. BC is certainly beautiful, especially Victoria, but I think Montreal is one of the loveliest cities in North America!
