Two years ago I went to the Butchart Gardens. The Butchart Gardens are different themed gardens that you walk through. It's one of those must do's if you visit Victoria BC. On Thursday night I went with my Mum's friend Barb, her husband Russ and her mother's home hellers Kimiko and Karl to see Christmas themed gardens. The sunken garden was amazing. All the trees, paths, had Christmas lights going through it. The Star Garden had lights all around it. It was quite amusing to go to the Rose Garden to see them all pruned back but with the lights all around made the garden come alive. The waterfall feature kept changing colour. It was really atmospheric. Throughout the gardens the theme was the twelve days of Christmas. I took plenty of photos. The things were big enough and there were signs along the way which made the journey through even more spectacular. It was very cold when we went, it was going to be a hard frost that night. We had to dress very warm and I have to say that the hot chocolate at the end was very nice and well deserved.
