Beautiful Summertime 2023

It has been a beautiful summer.  I hope you have been soaking up the sun and thoroughly enjoying every minute of it.  I visit the  Butchart Gardens on a regular basis to enjoy the changing of the seasons.  This year's rose garden was exceptional.   Just look at these amazing roses!
