Sequestered in neighbourhood not far from downtown. Nice story about the original occupants. Beautifully laid out gardens with seasonal change in blooms.

Lovingly planted, cared for and now looked after by scores of volunteers. A wonderful addition to the parks in Victoria.

I spent a sunny afternoon strolling through the gardens. You can also take high tea there as well in the dining room. The garden's exude serenity. Along the path in a potting shed is a place to sit and read Mrs. Abkhazi's book, "A Curious Life" which will give you some additional background on the amazing story of the Abkhazi's. A lovely place to stroll and renew your spirit. A gardener's delight.

The story of the couple who lived here and built this garden is a wonderful, romantic love story and allows you to understand the garden as you view it. You can imagine them in the garden, working and planting the garden areas.
Find it , it is worth seeing.
