Enjoy the View

I spent a delightful Sunday morning with my family, strolling through Wash Park. We "ooohed and aaahed" over the wonderful flower displays. The City of Denver does an amazing job every year creating dramatic and showy exhibits with annual bedding plants. They have gotton wise to incorporating colored foliage plants, such as coleus and kale, and ornamental grasses to shore up their flower displays. They also understand the concept of "planting big" - big plants in big areas - for better viewing by passing motorists, bicyclists, runners, skaters, etc. So even if you can't actually stop and smell the roses, keep your eyes open for these lovely and colorful displays---they won't be around to enjoy much longer.
