after much deliberation and planning, we decided to use derek’s day off on memorial day for a trip to the denver botanic gardens. and as a bonus, my friend chris, who you’ll meet in a future post, let us use her guest passes to get in for free!!
we caught back up with them and continued our stroll. anna has been taking a lot of pictures lately, so she quickly confiscated my phone to continue her efforts. (i decided keeping it while we were separated was my best option for reconnecting). here’s her taking a pic of the pond.
now we’ve come to the part of the blog where i just post a bunch of flower pictures. i don’t know their names. and i don’t even think i took half of these shots. i stole some from derek and anna took a bunch. so without further ado, i present to you, random unnamed flowers of the denver botanic gardens:
oh good. you kept reading (scrolling).
so, part of the thing people love about this place is the children’s garden. it’s a really cool play place, on the top of the parking garage. great views. cool play structures. sand (dirt) boxes. flowers and plants for kids to touch. and the lid kid favorite: a waterfall and stream. of course hazel had to attempt daredevil feats.
they frolicked in the water for a pretty long time, before the air cooled and some rain drops began plopping down on us. we escaped just as torrential downpours hit us. anyhoo. denver botanic gardens. thumbs up.
