The beautiful countryside just outside of town

It was time to leave the mountains for the city of Denver where we are currently enjoying a relaxing visit with friends Wendi and Rod. They took us to see a fabulous exhibit of Dale Chihula glassworks at the Denver Botanic Garden.

  1. You two have taken me thru areas I have ALWAYS wanted to visit. Your photos are exquisite. Was lucky to see a Dale Chihuly installation at Fairchild Botanic Gardens in Florida a few years ago. This post is such a
    treat. ( All of them are…) What title will your book have?
    Keep on truckin………..Thanks,Diane

    • So glad you’ve come along for the ride, Diane!

  2. The exhibit at the Botanic Gardens looks fantastic – that is the thing I miss most living up here……no culture to speak of. I miss museums and good art galleries……..
