These beautiful gardens are in British Columbia and I'm sure you will recognize this scene. Jigsaw puzzles keep me occupied throughout Winter evenings!

Hello Shirley, Thanks for posting.
These are Butchart's Gardens north of Victoria. Only few miles from our place as the crow flies. I know these gardens very well. We used to go there quite often but it got very popular with visitors from Asia and very crowded. I cannot handle crowds but we do go there in late spring to see their wonderful rose garden and in fall for dahlia display. I remember doing a blog in my previous account on these lovely gardens. It's gone now, but I might do one again next spring. It is a absolute must visit if you are in this area. The area in this picture is called "sunken garden" and is very picturesque year round.
I also mentioned these gardens in remarks in my blog "Fashions" recently.
I also love to do puzzles in winter Shirley. Good luck with it.

K, I seem to recall your blog from your old account on these beautiful gardens. I hope you do visit them again and look forward to seeing your photos! Enjoy the jigsaw puzzles too ... :o)

Lovely looking jigsaw picture! Those gardens look fantastic!

I'm also doing jigsaws - but the virtual versions on the computer! No more lost pieces & no going through 100s of pieces trying to find all the outside pieces to make up the frame. With the touch of a button they all appear - like magic - at the top & bottom of the screen! Of course you still have to sort them & put them in but at least you know there are no missing pieces & nothing will fall on the floor nor will you ever have to worry about spilling your drink over them or getting crumbs in them!

I have been doing them for most of this year, probably since before lockdown Mk1 - now we are in lockdown Mk2 perhaps I will get even more done!

Balcony, I don't think 'virtual' jigsaw puzzling would suit me at all!

Sheila, that must have been a wonderful visit ... :o)
