As promised, today we continue with our visit to the Denver Botanic gardens..
After a delightful lunch al fresco, we headed to the atrium which housed the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory..filled with tropical rain-forest varieties.. There we encountered heated humidity due to the required constant misting ..
I so hope you've enjoyed this visit to the tropical rain forest as much as did Deb and I!
there simply were too many varieties to name..
suffice to say beautiful Orchids, and Bromeliads were at every turn..
so many familiar (to me)tropical fruiting trees, as well as colorful Gingers covered the forest floor! the only thing I found to be missing were colorful parrots and monkeys swooping and chattering overhead!
oh YES..NO BUGS! not missed at all!!
Becoming a member now allows me unlimited visits to the gardens.. either solo or with a guest!
If you should find yourself here in Denver, let me know (via e-mail) and we shall make a fun day of it!
