Season of Inspiration

August 29, 2008 | Matt Cole
This is the season of inspiration. I know everyone talks about gardening in the spring, but this is the time of year that motivates me. Every garden has come into its own. Yards, parks, estates, landscapes: by now you know what they are going to be. Thick slabs of watermelon, backlogs of zuchini,...Learn more

Seen-Again Trees

Seen-Again Trees

May 24, 2008 | Matt Cole
It's true landscape architects speak about a concept called "borrowed views." You don't own the bucolic pasture, the fabulous waterfront, or the mountain range to your west, but you can see it from your window. You're "borrowing" that view to add to your own space. But when I say "seen-again" plant...Learn more

It's snow lovely

April 18, 2008 | Matt Cole
Wednesday's sudden snow may have been inconvenient for an evening commute, but it sure was lovely. Members who turned out for their night got a real treat, as long as they enjoyed the snow. I popped out and grabbed a few shots before the flakes melted into my clothes. Wednesday night was also the...Learn more

The melt-off seems terrifically quick after such a thorough snow storm. Spring will take hold before you know it. Now is a great time to watch a garden for changes between one day and the next.

This is Where the Scientists Work

February 18, 2008 | Matt Cole
During our recent stairwell work in the Boettcher Memorial Education Building, all of our staff and visitors had to avoid the public stairwell and use the elevator or the stairs near my office. One day, I found a child and chaperone looking for their school group. I volunteered to guide them to the...Learn more

Welcome to Rocky Mountain Gardening

February 13, 2008 | Matt Cole
Rocky Mountain Gardening is just that--gardening through the length of the Rocky Mountains, which means that the climates are vastly varied. Denver is a mile above sea level and seems dry and windy, but compare that to the top a fourteener (that’s a mountain reaching 14,000 feet)! I’ve already...Learn more
