As I often do,when running errands,I try to take different routes to and from my destination.
This was no different as I leisurely drove through an older historical area of Denver..
My errands completed, i found a shaded spot to park,grabbed the Nikon and started clicking..
My attention had been captured by this magnificent home. The house was locked and barred tightly.
I curiously prowled the grounds, discovering an array/abundance of flowers..although the yard was landscaped, it needed tender caring to reach it's beautiful potential..
Perhaps one of the most famous homes of all in this district...
2932 Lafayette Street
Home to Mary (May) Cody Branford Decker, sister of William "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Cody, known as a frontier Indian fighter and Buffalo hunter gained international fame for his wild west show, died here in 1917. Mrs. Decker lived in the house until her death in 1926.
A metal buffalo sculpture adorns the front yard.
The day was perfect in the early morning hours, but soon turned steamy..
After walking several blocks in either direction, and retracing my steps back to the parked car, the air conditioned car and my waiting jug of ice water beckoned me! Fully rested, refreshed and cooled down, I headed home to edit my pics of the day..
