Tofino Botanical Gardens
by Sherry Blue Sky
Entrance to the 12-acre Botanical Gardens in Tofino, B.C.
The gardens have been developed over twenty years.
Darwin's Cafe in the gardens - a popular gathering place
for poetry readings, book launches and other social events

Many trails wind through what was once dense forest.
Care was taken to displace as little vegetation as possible.
The inlet - serene and beautiful. A resting place twice
yearly for migratory birds.
Good morning, friends. Today we have some photos taken by Sherry Blue Sky on her visit to the Tofino Botanical Gardens. Aren't they beautiful?
Thanks to all of you who took part in this past week's Midweek Motif - "Dark Moon, New Moon. " Thanks also to those of you who visited the poems of other poets who wrote. Next week the Midweek Motif prompt will be "Journey."
Monday, be sure to come back and read Sherry's update with one of our Poets United poets who had been away for a while and now has returned!
If you haven't read Rosemary's post on Rupert Brooke's poem "The Wayfarers," please scroll back and read The Living Dead.
With no further delay, let's share poetry! Link your poem below. Stop into the comments and say hello. Then visit other poets who post. Come back a few times and see who is new. Enjoy your Sunday!
