We took our bi-annual trip to Butchart Gardens yesterday, and the weather cooperated which was a treat! The tulips were in bloom with the most striking, unusual colors, some of which I’d never seen! And the fragrance of hyacinth was everywhere-how brilliant to mix them in with just about every step of the way. Lovely day for us! I must be sure to take advantage of the picnic dinner available through their Blue Poppy restaurant-a choice of chicken or fish and a basket of goodies to take anywhere in the park to sit and eat surrounded by the peace. Must remember to do this this summer!
