Take a walk with me along a path under an arbor dripping with autumn color in the Denver Botanic Garden. I was here in late October to visit the spectacular Chihuly Glass Exhibit that is closing at the end of November--click here to read that blog post-- but now I'd like to show you the other beautiful ways the garden looked on my visit.

Every path leads to new views of these mini gardens within the Denver Botanical Garden in every season, but the reds, golds and oranges of autumn gave them all a special glow.
There are botanical delights to see everywhere....
...including the sighting of a female Downy Woodpecker in a tree!
Fall is certainly a beautiful time to visit the garden.....
...as there are also many flowers still in bloom!
Here is a small selection of flowers I photographed on my visit.
We also visited the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory within the Denver Botanical Garden, where cacti and succulents were displayed outside, while inside...
....the climate and moisture was equal to a day in a tropical rainforest,
There were a few Chihuly glass displays in the conservatory, but the real stars here were.....
.....the phenomenal lush and exotic tropical trees and plants that lined the paths and draped over the walkways from vines
The orchids and bromeliads that are in bloom this time of the year were delicate treasures for the eye to behold!
The Denver Botanic Garden is located at 1007 York Street, in Denver, Colorado, just 10 minutes from the downtown area. Click here to read parking, transportation, and other information for visitors. I highly recommend going for a visit if you are in the Denver, Colorado area.
If you are a reader in the US, you probably know from weather reports this week that our area in Colorado welcomed its first "Arctic Blast"! We had a couple inches of snow and a few days of record breaking cold temperatures. Even the community horses had to wear coats! I was thankful for a warm home, and the precious sight of watching my little granddaughter sit and watch the snow fall. She is saying many words now, and it was fun to see and hear her reaction to the snow.
If you are wondering how the Chihuly Glass Exhibit held up in the snow and cold click here to see a photo from the Denver Botanic Garden of an exhibit in the snow and their report. You can read all my blog's facebook updates on this link, and follow me on Instgram on this link. Thanks for visiting!
