I had the good fortune to travel with my husband to Vancouver, British Columbia for a business conference a year ago last May~ our first trip enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and a chance to visit our neighbors to the north in Canada.
The Butchart Gardens in Victoria were on the “not-to-be-missed” list. If you have a chance to visit, I highly recommend it~ photos don’t begin to do it justice!
I came home with some seeds, tea, and serious garden envy with hopes to return for a future visit to experience the gardens in all their glory in the summer or fall!
This spring I’m enjoying some tea, getting my flower fix from some favorite books with my tea tin as a vase, sprouting azaleas.
I’m reminiscing and revisiting the spring beauty of The Butchart Gardens.
If you’d like to tip toe through the tulips and see more photos along with more than 300,000 spring bulbs, you can visit here.
I found pastel chocolate flower cups at World Market, ($6.99 for 6 ) ready to bloom with your favorite filling for quick and easy dessert or a tea time treat!
I filled my flower cups with a mixture of lemon curd & light cream cheese, added strawberries, and topped them with an edible (pesticide and chemical free) viola.
