    Oh, I have been there! It’s truly gorgeous. It’s been years ago, but I still remember how stunning it was.

    I want to be there now. It is snowing hard here and we expect 6-10″ by evening. Yuck, I am so tired of winter this year and we still have a couple of months until we are assured that spring has sprung:(

    The cardinal and the mockingbird families that live in the tree outside our bedroom window just showed up yesterday. And now I find these beautiful garden photos and I am again reminded that spring is just a few breaths away. I can’t wait! Despite the allergies that keep half of my family indoors for the first month or so, I’m so ready for warm weather and flowers…

    I thought I recognized the photo of the gate – I live about 20 minutes away from Butchart Gardens and love visiting it in every season. The photos are gorgeous, especially the brilliant hyacinths.
