One of the things I miss during winter is the flowers. And winter can last a long time here in Montana. Fortunately for me, we decided to visit the Botanical Gardens during our stay in Denver.
I lived in Denver for four years and never once went down to see the gardens. That was a big mistake. I have to say this is one of the coolest places I have ever been to. I put it up there with the Wilbur D. May Arboretum in Reno. Got a little homesick for that place I must admit. Even so, Denver's gardens are their own unique kind of awesomeness. Well worth the trip if you ever happen to visit.
