York Street gardens will close at 3 p.m. on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 for concerts. Other early closings.
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?
