It couldn't have been a better day for the showing off gardens. The sunshine, blue skies and gorgeous flora and fauna combined to bring close to 600 people to the 11th annual Park Hill Garden Walk. People followed their passport to the gardens by either walking, biking or riding to the 15 gardens on the tour. All those who participated loved the variety and knowledgeable gardeners on hand to share their passionate green thumbs!
We are always looking for gardens and if you or someone you know may be interested in having their garden on the 2012 Garden Walk just email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Saturday's Park Hill Garden Walk is almost here. A highlight you don't want to miss is a wine tasting sponsored by Mayfair Liquors. The 1st garden behind Montview Presbyterian Church is also the place to meet a variety of garden related exhibitors, pick up gardening related brochures, buy posters and find the portopotties! All the gardens also feature a local artist either displaying or working en plein air. You can meet with the homeowners and discuss with them how they arrived at their green thumbs. Don't forget to see the rest of Park Hill also called "Denver's Urban Forest" and its fabulous architecture. Everyone loves to garden around here! See you in the garden!
