Garden Tour

This past weekend Sarah and I went on a garden tour in Denver. Not just any tour, but Rob Proctor's garden! He is a Colorado garden expert and local TV "celebrity" - at least I think he's one!
The gardens surround his home of 20 years, so it has developed through the years into this fabulous oasis of plants. He said at last count he had over 525 pots!!
This is a below ground level garden area down the wooden steps.
He favors blue pots - all shapes and sizes.
Color in one of the borders filled with perennials and annuals.
A close up of the kale surrounded by the pansies.
Looking out through the back of a garden room built on an old foundation they discovered.
Stair steps to the roof top garden above the "folly" with a pot on each step!
I'll try to post more pictures in a few days. There were some really interesting plants as well as many that I recognized and have in my own garden. It was heavenly in this garden. Oh. My. Truly a gardener's paradise!! Please check out the details by clicking on the pictures to enlarge them.♥♫

Can you imagine planting all of those pots? Then watering each day as we all know you have to water in Colorado!! Thanks for sharing your pics. Sally

Hi Marilyn,

I left you a note on my blog about where to find daylilies. I hear Denver is getting some heat! The tour looks so pretty, looking forward to more photos.

Oh goodness what a lovely yard!!! I wonder if he stores all those plants in the winter? I have discovered here in Colorado that plants don't winter over in my pots due to the cold. It has been so very hot here this past week that now my pots are not doing well due to the hot!

I can't imagine watering 500 pots, but they certainly make for nice photos!

Hopefully the weather will start cooperating but it isn't today and I suspect the fire is growing.
