We spent the afternoon this past weekend at the Horticultural Art Society’s Demonstration Garden in Monument Valley Park at the corner of Mesa Road and Glen Avenue, still pregnant with late-summer flowers, vegetables and insects.

(Music in this piece is “September Gurls” by Big Star. You can download a cover of this song at the Free Music Archive HERE.)

    The Colorado garden is such a riot of beautiful plants. I have a hard time stopping the water in the fall because I just don’t want it to go away. I’ve blown up my sprinklers more than once by delaying too long.

    Lovely pictures. Amazing pics of the phoenix moth! I’m always excited when I get one hanging around.

    Thanks!
