Denver Botanic Gardens

I love flowers too much to go to the Denver Botanic Gardens and not post a few shots of flowers I saw there, though the place is so huge that we only got to see part of the York Street Gardens.

The Tropical Conservatory and the orchid display in Marnie's Pavilion must surely be a highlight for most visitors, and I found it impossible not to try to capture some of the beauty of the various orchids, from varieties I’d never seen before

to more traditional looking, but even more spectacular blooms.

Personally, though, I was fonder of less spectacular flowers, like the these flower-within-a-flower hanging baskets,

these unusual looking Lilies (?),

but, most of all, this simple purple and red scene,

which probably says way more about me than it does about the Denver Botanic Garden.
