Victoria, BC July 5, 2018. On our last port of call, we visited two Canadian National Historical Sites. Butchart Gardens began as a big hole in the ground after the successful start-up of a cement business in 1888 by Bob Butchart. The simplified story is that Bob's wife, Jennie, asked "What should we do with the big hole in the backyard?" Bob replied "I don't know, maybe make a garden?"And there you have it. It's really magnificent as the pictures below show. The castle on the right is Craigdarroach castle from the same time frame but different family.
