Oh my! Last weekend, John and I spent a few hours at the Denver Botanic Gardens. What a gorgeous garden chockfull of mature hedges, unusual plantings, native Colorado beauties, exotic water lilies, profuse succulent gardens, absolute heaven on earth.
The dahlia above☝was as large as a dinner plate.
I took a million photos (#slightexaggeration) and could have stayed the entire weekend.
Guess what? As members of the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks… our admission was FREE. Reciprocity is a great perk of membership! (On my bucket list—to visit all the reciprocal gardens…how cool would that be?)
Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite pictures. Enjoy them. Pretend you are at the Denver Botanic Gardens and make plans to visit the next time you’re in Denver. It’s truly a magnificent place. I was a kid on sugar overload zipping along taking pictures and not getting the names of most these beauties.
The pictures don’t do justice to the flowers or the gardens.
Do they ever?
