York Street gardens will close at 3 p.m. on Oct. 26 and 27 to prepare for Glow at the Gardens.
Glow at the Gardens is sold out (no tickets available at the door).
The pumpkin patch at Chatfield Farms is closed for the season.
Where are the good stories about plants? A good story would help me remember their name and give me something fun to share when I’m out in the Gardens giving a tour. Online searches were frustrating me, so I pulled my eyes away from the computer and stumbled into the Helen Fowler Library at Denver Botanic Gardens. Within minutes Deb Golanty, the Senior Librarian, asked me what I was looking for and minutes after that I was handed the perfect book to quench my thirst: Stories and Legends of Garden Flowers by Vernon Quinn. Will I ever be able to look at a zinnia again and not think of the human eye?
