Hello friends! In the short 32 hours since visiting the High Plains Environmental Center (In a daze near Denver…High Plains Environmental Center), the traveling Garden Bloggers Fling 2019 participants have toured nine private gardens, one public garden and the home of Botanical Interests, a family owned seed company known to gardeners across the US. All were in the communities outside of Denver proper. Tomorrow, on our last full day of touring we will stay closer into the city visiting the Denver Botanic Garden and one of its extensions, Chatfield Farms plus six more private gardens.
With over 500 photos to sort through already to do each garden justice, I am going to tease you with just one snap of each garden–sort of a postcard from me to you just to show you what I’ve been doing on my vacation. Each garden will get a full post over the next few weeks.

OH MY! You were in Louisville! I so want to go to Louisville and find the small historic museum with my name on it! Did you go downtown?
So sorry, no I didn’t go downtown. We are a group of 85 split between two buses and thus no side trips or sightseeing available. It’s all we can do to get through all the gardens and still staying on schedule. The garden we toured in Louisville was at a tiny home that was one of the original miner’s cabins in that town. The garden was very personal and the history of the home interesting–I’ll put as much history as I know in the post. It will probably be more than a week away given the number of gardens I saw!

WHAT?! The Tomeo House IS a miner’s cabin too! How coincidental! Anyway, there is not need to apologize.
I don’t have the garden’s address but I might recognize the street name. Do you know what street your family’s place was on?

It is just north of the Louisville Historical Museum, which is at 1001 Main Street, on the west side of the street between South Street to the South and Short Street to the North. It is downtown, so was not likely near the garden on the tour. There are other historic miner’s cabins in Louisville.
Great photos, Kathleen! I was sorry to miss this year’s event.
I missed seeing you, too. Kathy S. told me you have a big remodel going on and I’ve seen your blog updates on it. I think you would have really enjoyed the interesting use of rock and especially the crevice gardens filled with both alpine plants–so adaptable to all the great small succulents which do so well for you in SoCal.
