One of the many gems of Vancouver Island is the Butchart Gardens, just north of Victoria on Brentwood Bay. This masterpiece of horticulture is one of the biggest attractions in Western Canada. This is the second time I have been at the Gardens and it was much more beautiful this second time than it was the first. This remarkable photo was taken between rain storms. After getting soaked earlier in the day, we dried off eating lunch and then finished our tour.
