Tulips Explode at Butchart Gardens

 In Canada

Butchart Gardens

On a recent trip back up to Butchart Gardens we finally saw this beloved Victoria, BC (Canada) hotspot in bloom. We visited with Dek while I was pregnant with Ty two years ago, but it was Christmas. Although the lights were spectacular, it was freezing. We were bundled up in multiple layers, taking note of at which point in our tour our toes began to freeze. Not this time. This trip it was a balmy 80 degrees, we were peeling off layers. It was glorious.

What was in bloom? Tulips, lots and lots of tulips. Japanese maples, daffodils, azaleas, and so much more could be seen throughout this 55-acre National Historic sight of Canada. We enjoyed a leisurely afternoon strolling the grounds with the kids, having a picnic near the carousel, and breathing in the heavenly scent of lilacs. This trip just reminded me why we need to go back up for summer and fall. There is always something new to see at Butchart.

    Tulips are my all time favorite. I love it when hubby buys a bunch of them when they are not fully open, and I get to watch them bloom over a few days. There is something about the colours they have! Great photos you have of the gardens
