It's a wrap on my first year as a garden blogger. It's been delightful to write about gardening in and around the Denver area and hopefully an informative and enjoyable read for you as well. I wish you the very best in 2015...health, joy and your finest garden to date.

My husband Glen and I had the fortunate opportunity to visit France and the Netherlands earlier this fall. We concluded our trip in Amsterdam at the Anne Frank house, so thought her quote very fitting to end the year. Despite her tragic circumstances she found solace in nature, something we all have in common.
"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go
outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens,
nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should
be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of
nature." Anne Frank
