During the earlier days, having a garden served a different purpose than merely aesthetics. It was created to store plants with medicinal purposes and for food. For some, it was also a way to worship the gods and goddesses. Nowadays, gardens are created to bring out the beauty of nature and for so many more reasons.
Take a trip and see the world’s magnificent gardens. Who knows, you just might find something to add to your bucket list of next places to visit.
Located at Brentwood Bay in British Columbia is a garden that has been tagged as one of the National Historic Sites of Canada because of its rich history and beauty. The garden, which was built during the 1900s, is filled with an estimated 900 types of flowering blooms that attract millions of visitors all locally and internationally every year.
Jennie Butchart, who arrived in the west coast of Canada from Ontario with her husband Robert at the turn of the century, started the garden.
