"Our Cherry Tree" Linden Gardens, Kaleden.
Red Blossom and Hyacinths
A Delicious Pink Blossom
Back to Linden Gardens again to see and photograph the Spring flowers, wander around to see "Our Cherry Tree", the one that has red cherries on one side and black ones on the other. It seems to be doing well, we just have to hope the bees come and pollinate it. We call it "Ours" because we seemed last year to be the only ones eating the cherries! The whole garden area was a cherry orchard some years ago, and taking the idea of converting it to a garden from Minter Gardens, and Butchart Gardens, the owners took the plunge some years ago and removed all the cherry trees . There is a cherry orchard however still going next door. (Unfortunately I can't give you a link to Linden Gardens at the moment; maybe their website is under reconstruction.) More photos from yesterday can be seen here. We enjoy Linden Gardens as a substitute for our own garden which we don't have any more as we live in a Lodge....
