The gardens at Beacon Hill Park – Victoria

The summer flowers at Beacon Hill Park are spectacular. I have always thought of Springtime as the time for amazing displays of colourful flowers, but there was nothing lacking from these flowers.

Bees are reportedly in decline, but is sure doesn’t feel like it living in BC! (I only say ‘reportedly’ since I have not looked into this other than seeing blog posts / articles about this online – I suspect it is true and is a little scary…)

We were lucky the rain from the previous day had stopped and the sun come out to shine for our visit to the gardens.

The gardens here are gorgeous and it made me wonder why people would pay $$ to go to the Butchart gardens when these ones are free. After now seeing the Butchart gardens, I maybe understand, but Beacon Hill Park is definitely worth a visit. There is also a mini farm / petting zoo there too, which is entry by donation and worth a visit if you have littlies. If you didn’t see the pics of the peacock at Beacon Hill, check it out here. He was stunning! Post from Butchart Gardens coming soon!
