A day with flowers and greenery - Botanical Gardens, Denver, CO

I love nature and greenery but I have never realized my love for gardening until I came to the US. In India, life used to go at a fast pace with work, home, and kids. There were many nurseries near our home but I didn't get time to care for plants. This summer, I experimented with a small home garden with a few flower plants, basil, mint, coriander leaves, and methi. I am successful to some extent and want to try vegetables next year.

With this interest in mind, we visited Denver botanic gardens in the summer and the experience is more than what I expected.

Colours looked beautiful

Real treat to eyes

Model garden

Beautiful blooms

The botanic gardens is a public park located in Cheesman Park neighborhood in Denver. Entry is around $12.5 for adults and $9 for kids(kids under 2 are free). It has a wide range of gardens on 24 acres with plants from all corners of the world. There are garden models depicting different environments in the world like tropical, rain forest, desert areas.

Though our legs pained a bit, we enjoyed watching colorful flowers, beautiful ponds with fishes, gardens and water fountains.

So, how do you like this virtual tour? Do remember the botanic gardens when you visit Denver, CO.

Until next time,
