Empty pots at the Denver Botanic Gardens
Walking is my principal exercise. When I tire of walking the neighborhood, I drive to favorite places and walk there. The Denver Botanic Gardens, City Park and Denver Zoo are three favorites. Today I chose the DBG and spent over an hour there. The plant beds were turned over and ready. Some showed tips of perennials peeking through the soil. The pots were ready, just waiting the signal that it's warm enough to transfer plants from the greenhouse to pots and beds.
Koi had been put in the one aerated pond until the Japanese garden ponds are filled for the spring and summer. When we stepped onto a boardwalk platform near the edge of the pond, many of the koi came over to see if we had food. We didn't. (I don't feed wild animals people food.) The photo below shows the reflection of clouds and trees, the aeration bubbles and some debris.
Even without the abundance of flowers, the water canals or fountains, it is a favorite place.
