Places I’d Like to Go
Butchart Gardens located in Brentwood Bay, a village on the Saanich Peninsula that is part of the city of Greater Victoria on Vancouver Island. Butchart Gardens had an interesting genesis. It was originally a limestone quarry worked by Robert Butchart to supply cementum for his pioneer work with Portland Cement. By 1904 helium had deserted one part of the quarry and his wife, Jennie, decided to beautify the exhausted site. I can't wait to see this come summer vacation.
