We went to Vancouver Island over the long weekend (Victoria Day). One of the places we visited was Buchart Gardens. I could have spent the entire day there but only had a couple of hours due to timing. I hope you enjoy the set, all 37 photos are here; Buchart Gardens Photo Gallery by ajuett at

I visited to Buchart Gardens in 2008 during my USA-Canada trip, beautiful place.
Nice photos No. 2 and 4 are my favourites.

Thanks Adam! I only brought the F 50mm with me, there were times I could have used the kit zoom.

I have been there many times when I had my gardening hooby. Need to get back there with my new hobby and take some pixs. Well done. I too like the last two. JIM

Really nice shots. My wife and I spent an entire afternoon there in June 1997 while our 2 sons were out whale watching. Needless to say, it was a very enjoyable afternoon.
