The Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, 12 kilometers north of downtown Victoria, is a public garden lovingly cared for by volunteers, students and staff.
Every year the Centre holds a two-day Art in the Garden.
Craft vendors set up booths along the paths in the garden, and floral art fills unexpected corners.
The garden becomes a magical place full of natural and handcrafted beauty.
Bridges and stepping stones lead you across the stream in the Japanese garden.
The garden is a joy to visit in every season of the year with heathers, rhododendrons, hostas and herbs.
