We love visiting gardens, so the Denver Botanic Gardens was a must-do during our Colorado trip.
I'm going to let the pictures do most of the talking for this post.
Going in early June guaranteed colorful flower viewing.
There were sculptures to gaze at.
We stumbled upon some wildlife.
The Children's Garden is on top of the parking garage, across the street from the larger garden. We jaunted over for a quick look.
Back at the larger garden, at the cafe, we discovered that certain drinks were refillable. We thought that this was quite generous of the gardens. I don't think we would see that anywhere at home.
Most of the day was spent wandering relaxing paths.
Speaking of relaxing, the best part about Denver Botanic Gardens is its manageable size. It's not small, but it is also not massive and endless. We were able to see everything in one day, and we didn't feel rushed. There was plenty of time to sit on benches, admire the scenery, and watch the world go by, slowly.
