Today my mom and I went to the Denver Botanic Gardens. We spent over 10 glorious hours there strolling through all the gardens, visiting the library, walking through the conservatory, enjoying a picnic lunch, knitting among the flowers, and otherwise enjoying paradise on earth.
I took a bunch of photos, so I’ll certainly be sharing more in the days to come, but I’ll need some time to organize them. The photos in this post are of the alpine garden, which is my favorite, and of the central pond that borders the montane garden and the Japanese garden. Today there was an art class lined up around the pond, painting the water lilies. It was neat to watch them work.
On every trip we’ve made to the botanic gardens, we’ve had rain in the late afternoon/evening hours. This tine was no exception, although it was just light, spotty rain. As the gardens closed and we headed towards the gate, a magnificent double rainbow arched over the sky. It was amazing! A perfect miracle to end a day spent admiring the ordinary miracles of plant and blossom.
Blessings to you,
