Flowers, history, secret gardens
Do you have a love of flowers and trees? of walking in nature? Does history and culture feature in your travels? If so, then this private tour, 'Native and Heritage Island Gardens', is for you.
I like to share with you some of my favorite gardens. We would visit different gardens and parts of the city of Victoria. In summer see and ancient rose garden overlooking the Salish Sea. As well, walk through a secret passage of rhododendrons in a 1940's royal yard. Native gardens and flower baskets grace the city of Victoria, BC. I like a walk through Bastion Squares and into the Empress's gardens. In Victoria BC. , and on Vancouver Island you will encounter a thousand wildflowers, a rainbow of blooms. And amazing trees that only grow in the Pacific Northwest.
We will visit:
The oldest Japanese Gardens in Canada
The gardens at Government House
The Horticultural society gardens of Victoria
The gardens in Beacon Hill Park
