Easter 2012 – My mom’s garden

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!

Easter 2012 – Garden at Hatley Castle

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.

Here is a link to the website for the castle http://hatleycastle.com/ and Hatley Park http://www.hatleypark.ca/

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 🙂
