Abkhazi Garden. The garden was formerly the home of a couple with a romantic history. He was a prince. There was a love affair in Paris. They were separated by war and imprisoned, but ultimately re-united. They settled in Victoria and devoted their final years to creating beauty in the garden around their house. That beauty is now wonderfully maintained by a corps of volunteers. After a stroll in the garden we enjoyed a superb lunch in the dining room of the house. The photo above was taken in the garden and is one of those mysterious photos that happens from time to time. There is something wrong with this photo but there is also something that is very satisfying for me.
