While Jenny Butchart may have been very much the Victorian era lady, early photos of her hanging from a Bosen's chair installing plants along the high quarry walls attest to her active role in creating her personal garden of Eden. Her husband, a collector of ornamental birds, filled her ponds and gardens with colorful wildlife. Together, they christened the garden estate "Benvenuto" in welcome to all those who would come and enjoy their garden wonderland.
