Shrub
Late winter to early spring is the ideal time to prune deciduous shrubs before new growth begins.  Although it’s easy to neglect these garden workhorses, view pruning as important to growing a healthy shrub that will set off the rest of your garden efforts.
Wurzburg
Vignette at Würzburg Among the top rank of botanic gardens are gardens whose name ends with "burgh" or suchlike: Edinburgh, Gothenburg, Nymphenberg. The botanic garden at the University of Würzburg is the epitome of all I love and admire in the profession I've been so lucky to pursue. My visit there was half agony, but mostly ecstasy...Why do you ask?
Seedlings
 
The word “Ikebana” is derived from two words: “ike” which means to live or make alive and “bana(=hana)” which means flowers or plants.   “Ikebana” literally means “to make (cut) flowers alive.”  While love toward floral beauty has long inspired people in the East and West to decorate their indoor surroundings with cut flowers, leaves and branches, it is a unique characteristic of “Ikebana” to arrange these in a way that expresses the life of the plant materials.  Ikebana reflects
Tibetan singing bowls
Wondering what a Tibetan Singing Bowls "Sound Healing Concert" is all about?  It is an opportunity to lay down (if you wish) and receive some seriously good vibrations....literally!!!   Sound healers Jason and Chris Anne Coviello will begin the concert with Jason playing his Hang Drum which is a very rare steel drum that is made by only two people in the world.  Some say it sounds like a stringed instrument.  Jason's Hang Drum is tuned to the note that vibrationally corresponds to the heart chakra and when he plays the drum, he takes you on a heart-opening journey.
Ghost Tours at Denver Botanic Gardens
In many places, the changing of the leaves hearalds the beginning of autumn.  From my windows, I can see many colors, some quite brilliant in the sun. But most of the trees on my street are still green--not giving in to fall at all!  I am like them. Sure, its a bit nippy before sunrise, but I have not admitted that fall is really here. Autumn requires more sweaters than I have on now...

  Pulsatilla halleri white Is this pasqueflower in a garden? Or the wild? This and literally thousands of other wildflowers are growing in Peter Korn's private garden as they would on their native alps and Himalayas!
Sliced Peaches
Dripping down my chin, sticky fingers from sweet free-flowing juice and a bliss smile stretched across my face. Yes, this was my first taste of a truly sun-ripened summertime peach. My father had purchased a big box from a gentlemen passing through our remote mountainous town in northern New Mexico.  I had never seen such big, plump peaches in all my life…much less an entire box full. It was a warm day on our small porch of which I left sweet droplets of peach for the sun to dissolve.
The notion of putting food up is one that previous generations were familiar with - taking the bounty of the local harvest and preserving it for later.  Of course, many of us didn’t grow up with the tradition of putting food up.  But as we have become re-introduced with the art of growing our own vegetables and cooking from farm-to-table, the art of home-preserving has seen a resurgence.  Now we have the desire to figure out
Outdoor painting
New or seasoned to the art of painting, join us at the Gardens for some inspiration for your next painting! Painting outdoors is attributed to the Impressionists. It was the magic of photography that allowed them to see what affect time of day and sunlight had on their surroundings. Before the camera, artists would often have one painting with several different light sources going on.
