Victoria, British Columbia

I took a short trip to Victoria, B.C. with a dear friend to celebrate our fall birthdays.  The weather was fabulous, the warmest temps of the year – around 80 degrees.  We visited Butchart Gardens and took lots of pictures of one of the most beautiful gardens in the world.
