The sky might have been cloudy and gray, but the explosion of riotous color that surrounded us more than made up for the weather. What was once a limestone quarry is now a bounty of beauty as flowers of every color bloom on 55 acres just outside of Victoria, British Columbia. We timed our visit pretty close to perfectly during the first week of August, as almost every type of plant bloomed in shades of pink, violet, orange and yellow. After a rainy morning that chased away the crowds, the sky brightened just enough for us to spend a few hours in this incredible garden. Beautiful landscapes, meandering pathways and charming waterfalls fill the gardens. But really, that’s all I can say. The rest you’ll have to see for yourself.
