Victoria Gardens

Apparently we have been busy in the last week, but see the exciting conclusion of our Victoria wanderings below!

One of the aspects of wandering around Victoria that Jasmine and I like the most is all of the various gardens that are open for the public to wander through. This time, the big ticket find was Government House, the residence for the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. The grounds are full of a surprisingly large number of sub-gardens with multiple rose gardens, a wilderness area, and an obligatory herb garden. It was a very pleasant place to wander around for an hour or so in the morning.

One day we will run out of things to find in Victoria, but not this visit.

Lavender everywhere in the herb garden! It is almost a weed around here.

There was a heraldry exhibit apparently? I took a picture of the cutest coat of arms.
