A couple of weeks ago, on a hot Sunday afternoon, Madi and I cashed in our complimentary tickets that our landlord had given us for The Butchart Gardens. The Butchart Gardens are a pretty popular tourist destination here in Victoria, and just so happen to be right down the road from home. I don't know how I've lived here so long and have never actually stepped foot in the gardens, but our landlord started working for them last year and gave us some free tickets, so I had no reason not to visit!
I never expected it to be as beautiful as it was! I was in awe of all of the flowers and work that must go into the upkeep. The Italian Garden was my very favourite. It really felt like I stepped into a little Italian courtyard for a couple of minutes and made me want to visit the real Italy even more than I already do!
I definitely want to make it back a little later this summer when the roses are in bloom in the Rose Garden. It was such a lovely afternoon spent with my best friend!
