|I have some additional pics of the gardens so will add them here|
Description: Spanning more than 23 acres, this urban garden features more than 15,000 species from around the world.
Come with me while we spend take an afternoon stroll through a small part of the Denver Botanic Gardens on York Street in Denver.
This oasis of blossoms and greenery in the middle of urban homes is a fun relaxing place to spend an hour or two.
I did not get all the pictures I wanted but here are a few of the plants that I did catch.
The sedum trail
A few of the sedum planters
Sempervivums are potted along this pathway beside a fountain walkway
It is not just flowers --- this brilliant hued Barberry is a delight
Hidden bowers for relief from sun or relaxation and meditation are located all around the gardens.
A view of the Lilly pond and Kizuna Bamboo Structures
Some of the paths lead to surprising views and along flowing waterways in the shade that restore on a hot day
Alpine Garden - Another hidden garden a bit of a walk but so worth it.
Cannas and hidden sculptures form a quite spot to stop
On the way out - more places to stop and rest awhile and explore gardens dedicated to pioneer gardeners in Colorado
Hope You enjoyed our visit -- I will add more later, I am visiting pretty frequently these days.
It is good for the physical body and the soul too.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.
