Butchart Gardens

What an amazing birthday present from my husband Aaron! When visiting family in the Pacific-Northwest, Aaron surprised me with a trip to the beautiful and historic Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC. It was gorgeous! I was entranced by all of the vibrant and texturized plant life. I saw so much, including wild Anemone flowers, Dahlia's the size of my face, Roses, burgundy Amaranths, Chocolate Cosmo's, curling branches, a mesmerizing spider web, foliage, foliage, foliage! AND BEES: beautiful and hard at work!

At one point it felt like we stumbled into The Secret Garden of Frances Hodgson Burnett's fantasy! Complete with floating-stone walk ways and a family of deer made entirely of moss.  Here are some of my favorite pictures of the day.
