Growing up, my grandmother shared with me her love of plants and flowers. I remember making bookmarks with pressed flowers from her garden and will never forget the smell of the potpourri she made to fill little handmade sachets. So it’s really no surprisethat I love Van Dusen Botanical Garden with its 55 beautiful acres. I’m a proud Vancouverite and Van Dusen is one of my favourite places to spend time in the city. If you have the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend doing so. I met with a girlfriend there this morning, and here are some of the things we saw.
