Port Hardy, Gardens
View a larger image on flickr.com
A little known wonder on North Vanc. Is. is this garden, growing amid the rain forest trees. A man named Bernt Ronning lived here in the early 1900,s. He got seeds from all over the world and planted them here. There are many exotic trees, flowers and shrubs growing here, including 'monkey puzzle trees', which there are seedlings available to those who wish to have one and grow it in their own yard. The trees in the centre of this picture are these trees. This place is amazing and well worth the drive. Go west from Port Hardy on the Holberg to Cape Scott road. About half way to Cape Scott is the sign. It's a 15 minute walk to the Garden.
