"The Butchart Gardens: A few miles from Victoria lie the famous Butchart Gardens, private property but open to public view. What was once an old quarry is now a beautiful pool rimmed round by vines and flowers of amazing variety and luxuriance. Near the house on the estate is an Italian Garden. Close by is a Japanese Garden."
