Imagine that it’s about 65 degrees on a clear day. There is no rain or clouds in sight. You remove your shoes, then step out your back door and sink your toes into soft grass. You close your eyes and inhale the scent of freshly tilled soil. You meander over to your tomato plants – you smile as you see that they are growing nicely. After that, you check on the butter-yellow morning glories you tenderly planted last week. Your heart is warmed as you notice they way they obligingly took root in your window box. You step back and feast your eyes on your little garden, which is a tiny slice of heaven on earth and breathtaking.
What is it about a garden that is powerfully calming, reassuring, and hope-inspiring? Merely reading about the senses evoked by a garden brings rest and peace. For some, gardening is an outlet for stress relief that is far more powerful than exercise or meditation. For others, a garden provides endless hours of fun. What does gardening mean to you?
If you enjoy gardens, keep reading. We want to introduce you to 3 of the most artistic gardens in the world. They are so breathtaking that you’ll want to see them for yourself.

Canada’s Butchart Gardens are, in one word, dreamlike. Located in Victoria, British Columbia, these gardens are wildly attractive to travelers from all over. As is stated on the Butchart Gardens’ official website, “Each year over a million bedding plants in some 900 varieties give you uninterrupted bloom from March through October. Almost a million people visit annually for spring’s colourful flowering bulbs; summer’s riot of colour, entertainment and Saturday Fireworks; fall’s russets and golds; the Magic of Christmas’ decorations; and winter’s peacefulness.”
#3 – Arizona’s Desert Botanical Garden
Interested in visiting a jaw-dropping garden located in the US? If so, you absolutely must see the Desert Botanical Garden that is located in Phoenix, Arizona. According to Top Dreamer, the “Desert Botanical Garden has the most spectacular desert plants collection. It has about 17,000 spices of desert plants. It also has a 13,700-square-foot desert plant research center and herbarium, with a library, laboratories, plant conservation, and research facilities.”
