A mid week filler--enjoy!!

God's paintbrush is evidenced in these magnificient fall pictures from
The Butchart Gardens in Victoria, B. C







The Butchart Gardens are part of our beautiful West Coast. Below is a quote from a friend who drove up to her vacation home on an island, near the Canadian border.

She writes of her trip......

"What a beautiful day, beautiful drive....and the fall colors....and the Ferry ride...with all the islands, so green...... and the sparkling waves....honestly....spectacular....what a wonderful world....The West Coast definitely a Jewel in the Maker's Crown...."

Yes, indeed a jewel! Beautiful pictures! I hope to get to Buchart Gardens one of these days. We should do it before they officially require passports, huh?
