UBC Botanical Gardens Asian section

I’d never visited these gardens before although I’d driven past a number of times. The Asian Garden was nothing like any Botanical Gardens I’d visited. It was not laid out in neat rows with every tree labeled. It was more like a beautiful forest.

I took the lower path first where it was impossible to avoid the noise from passing traffic. Still, I was informed that September was an excellent time to view mountain ash because it was a banner year for its fruits. I soon came across a sprouting colourful display.

While the pathways were well labeled, not all trees were. There was a rhododendron collection, but it was too late in the season for flowering. Not that it mattered. Nor did I care that I missed the Greenheart tree walk because I had a similar experience in New Zealand and discovered that I preferred admiring trees from the ground rather metres above.
