Travel Photo Friday | The Van Dusen Botanical Gardens

February 18, 2011 • By


I’m a day late and probably a dollar short with this one.  But my favorite photo this week is one that was taken at the Van Dusen Gardens in Vancouver in the winter.

I loved the way the pink heather climbed up to greet visitors who may be sitting in the gazebo.  While it was most certainly a cold, rainy day, we barely noticed it.

It was absolutely fascinating to see a garden so lovely despite the inclement weather.  It was as if hope, personified , tipped its hat to assure us that everything was going to be just fine.   I thought it was the perfect…picture perfect moment to capture.
