On August 5, 2014, Denver Botanic Gardens conducted its second trial evaluation day for the York Street Trial Garden. Located right outside our main entrance gate, visitors can get a look at various plant entries participating in the trials.
I was born in Colorado, and have spent most of my life here--and lots of time poking around the plains and mountains--to the extent that I've seen and can identify most of the showier native wildflowers, and a good many of the less showy ones as well. A few have escaped me.
Denver Botanic Gardens' waterways provide a spectacular vantage point for sculpture viewing, offering a glimpse into the looking glass to see art amid the living landscape reflected in surprising vistas.
One hot summer day I went to visit my former client’s organic garden and she said to me, “One day I want to eat just from my garden. I wonder if I could do it for a month?” I quickly responded that I loved the idea and wanted to try it. Our friend, who is an organic urban grower, wanted to take this challenge as well. The three of us planned to live off of our gardens from September 1-30.
