We spent a beautiful day in the Montreal Botanical Gardens and were thoroughly impressed. We enjoyed ourselves here far more than at Butchart gardens in Victoria near the start of our trip – and they are ‘meant’ to be much better than these ones. There was an amazing Chinese garden which we spent hours in, a Japanese garden, a rock garden, water garden, Canadian garden, a Lilac garden and a few others. It was kinda ironic to love the Chinese garden best in Canada! It was huge though and a lovely place to be.
We also spent a lot of time amongst the Lilac’s, Soph you were so right, they are gorgeous and the fragrance is heavenly… Our photos are here.
