Today's dose of "I can't wait for spring to properly arrive" is a series of lush green wonderful from a trip to Victoria, British Columbia a few years ago.  I think I could have spent the entire vacation holed up in the Japanese section of Butchart Gardens, and I'm fairly certain that any future trip out to the West Coast will have to have an even larger section of time blocked off to properly explore more of the awesomeness that is these gardens.

It was a whirlwind weekend to celebrate a wedding, so I really only feel like I got a taste of the area.  Luckily, we have family in the area, so I can see a few visits in our future!
