The garbage cans of Butchart Gardens

Garbage cans, dustbin, ashcan, waste-bin, rubbish receptacle, garbage pail, litter basket, trashcan, whatever you call them, in Butchart Gardens, you can call them pretty.

Our visit to Butchart last spring had me not only taking hundreds of photos of the beautiful and over-the-top botanical park, but taking photos of the garbage cans—all decked out with plantings as fine as in any container around the park.

Makes me feel like my garbage can is seriously lacking.










I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.
