Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the Organic Islands Festival, held at Glendale Gardens in Victoria (yesterday and today both). I was there manning a booth for a non-profit society that I volunteer with, not a bad job on a sunny Saturday afternoon in a picturesque setting.
If you haven’t been, Glendale Gardens is a nature-lover’s oasis perched on the side of a hill just outside of town. It used to be called the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific. Of course it’s a lovely venue for weddings and I passed a bride and groom and their wedding party on their way in as I was on my way out for the day.
Here’s a shot of that lovely beauty:
If you live in the Victoria area and haven’t visited this place, I recommend you make a stop. Not only do they have beautiful gardens, they have courses on gardening as well. I took a ‘growing vegetables’ course there this past year and came home with broccoli starts that just gave me my first crop out of my veggie garden!
