We humans are no more exempt than the bees and butterflies and hummingbirds when it comes to plants: We’re attracted to their sweetness and beauty. We recognize plants as life. And so we shop. We wander through greenhouses and shuffle through nurseries, searching out plants. We are mesmerized. Hypnotized. Hortiholics.

Bungalow gardens, cottage garden
The Arts and Crafts movement brought about the clean lines and unfussy patterns of the bungalow style house.  Bungalows were first built in England and then migrated to America in the early 1900's along with a changing garden style.  With the bungalow came the cottage style garden and some specific hardscape to enhance the lines of the house.  The formal gardens and ornate excesses of the Victorian era were now passe. 
Fresh and Healthy Salads
Let’s face it – you know you’re supposed to eat more salad, mainly because it’s super-healthy, mostly raw and (usually) packed with vegetables, but you’re bored. You’re disenchanted. You’re ready to break up with salad. It just isn’t thrilling you the way it used to. The spark is gone.

Another growing season begins. Green sprouts begin their ascent towards the sun. Seeds are sown. Earth is tilled and moved. The spring season is symbolic of renewal, growth and vitality. The plant life awakens around Denver Botanic Gardens, and an urban oasis is formed. For decades, the Denver Botanic Gardens has provided us with a wonderful sanctuary of color and life. It has become a place to reflect and a place to reconnect.

Jennifers Garden
Do you ever feel like you have a brown thumb because you can’t get that one persnickety vegetable to grow? Well, the good news is you're probably not alone.

Plant exploration influences our lives in many unexpected way. While there is still much to be discovered in the dark recesses of the forests, oceans, and mountains, what we’ve already found benefits us in unique and surprising ways.

In the spring session of the Literature of the Land book club, we’ll focus on the many facets of plant exploration – in history, fiction, and the modern era.
Islamic Garden
We live in such a dynamic and exciting world where everything seems to compete for our attention, gardening and horticulture are one of the activities that many people turn to for escape from the rat race.   Long known to be quiet reflective gardens, Islamic gardens have offered throughout the centuries places of refuge and quiet for their users.
