While enjoying my day off at the Botanic gardens, I came across a lily pond that brought about a feeling of being at peace. It was the most relaxing and enjoyable setting to surround one’s self with. Living in the city I am constantly surrounded with the blasting sirens of fire trucks and police cars speeding down nearby streets, so having a place like the Botanic Gardens to go to, not only allows me to unwind from the stressful city life, but also acknowledge the simple joys in life - the gifts Mother Nature has so graciously provided us with. This photo colorfully illustrates the serenity and beauty of the Botanic Gardens while reflecting it's place in the heart of Denver, Colorado.April 26, 2012 Like Add a Comment
