It's back to Vancouver Island for this virtual garden walkabout - hopefully by next Spring we will be able to visit this beautiful place in person once again, maybe even this Fall.
Rated one of the 10 best public gardens in Canada by Canadian Geographic Travel it is small wonder why it is one of my favourite places to visit when on the island. It is a wonderful blend of woodlands and floral gardens and contains an impressive collection of rhododendrons. I have no idea how many, but trust me - there's a lot.
I am so busy photographing and enjoying these beauties I pay no heed to the names - sorry.
Shades of pinks & purples.
So many shades of red - they may knock your socks off
Yellows and creams aplenty
There is a beautiful collections of columbines to be enjoyed as well.
Mrs. Milner was a devoted conservationist and gardener. She studied woody plants and shrubs so it is to be expected that there is an amazing collection of all sorts of flowering shrubs on the grounds as well.
Garden statuary throughout.
