Favorite thing: Even if you don't get a chance to visit Buchart Gardens, flower lovers will not be disappointed as the center of Victoria is a giant outdoor garden, filled with vibrant magenta flowers spilling out of hanging baskets, more flowers lining the sidewalks, surrounding the inner harbour and accenting the statue of Queen Victoria.

My favorite flower photo was the one I took outside the Empress Hotel of the ladies of the Red Hat Society in their purple dresses. For those of you not familiar with this club, it is for ladies over 50 year old and the sole purpose seems to be just having fun. But I also loved the floral designed orca emerging from a bed of flowers.

And Rob, for all the flower photos you take, you'd think that you'd know the name of SOME of them LOL
