APGA Day 5

Day 5 of the American Public Garden Association (APGA) Conference went well.  The morning had some sessions but there was time to explore downtown Denver too.  I thought I'd share tour photos from yesterday morning as we visited the special home gardens of some Denver Botanic gardens staff; Mike Kintgen and Panyoti Kelaidis.  Both homes were spectacular and the final stop (last photo) was at a large garden with a daylily collection that was just starting to bloom.   The first four photos were at Mike's where he had some great troughs and containers with rare alpines.  Panyoti's garden was larger with some more naturalistic areas, a water feature and also, plenty of alpines.  It was a great day for photos as I had a full morning of shots and then the afternoon at the Denver Botanic Garden (DBG).  I had not been to DBG in many years and enjoyed seeing the new Children's Garden, Chihuly glass exhibit and of course the gardens in general.  More sessions this afternoon and a late reception this evening to close out the event.  Another sunny day!
