Butchart Off the Charts
The Butchart Gardens. I was most impressed with one of the Gardens' most stunning features, the sunken garden, an old mine site transformed into a spectacular Eden. Atop the sunken garden mound stands a massive red-wooded tree; if you look at the people near the bottom of the photo, you begin to appreciate the scale of the tree and the garden that surrounds it. Even this image captures but a tiny slice of the sunken garden's scope.
