I also took a couple pictures of my mom’s garden while I was in Victoria. Daffodils were out, the cherry tree was just finishing blooming, and there was a ton of beautiful pink heather flowering. While I was there I got to prune dead catmint growth from last year and pull a dead plant out of the ground 🙂 I should have taken more photos of the backyard… maybe next time I’m there I’ll remember to do that!
I spent the Easter long weekend visiting my family in Victoria, BC. While I was there, we visited the garden at Hatley Castle. While less well known than Butchart Gardens, the gardens are absolutely beautiful and open to the public.
Every time I go back to visit, my parents usually take us on a walk to visit. Its also somewhere that they bring family friends and relatives to see when they are in town.
Its been a few years since I’ve visited the gardens in spring. The rhododendrons in particular were spectacular, as were the hellebores. Below are some pictures. Enjoy 🙂
