Our photographer, Bonnie, comments on capturing photos of hummingbirds: "it's rare but sometimes I'm in the right spot at the right time, with the right camera on the proper setting."

We love that the Pacific tree frog is part of our ecosystem here at The Gardens.

The tulips spanning the residence lawn give us a glimpse of blooms to come.

Hoppy Easter Weekend!
We're excited to host the annual Easter Bunny Hunt taking place today through Monday. We provide the map, and children 17 and under can have fun marking the location of all 12 bunnies scattered through The Gardens. Completed maps can be turned in at the Visitor Centre for a special Easter treat.
Spring lunch and Afternoon Tea are also available.

Polar Bear looks like she had a great day at The Gardens.

The long weekend is just around the corner. We're hoping for sunny weather for the flowers, and for families to be able to enjoy time outside.

The Pulsatilla vulgaris is currently in bloom here. This fascinating flower is a perennial that likes the sunshine and calcium-rich soil.
