Denver Trip (Day 3) Part 1

Please excuse me as I split up another day but what I did on Friday night just has to be a separate entry. Anyway, I had another great day at the Denver Botanic Gardens. The place is so big that I kept finding new places to explore and new flowers to take pictures of. I thought I'd post some of the more recognizable one and definitely the prettier flowers. I do have one mystery flower which I can only identify as a thistle but I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what it's name is. This would be for those living in the more arid regions of the U.S.

Ah, yes, lilies, roses and orchids!
Love them. And yes i think that's a thistle.
We have a blue variant here. Maybe strange but I really like them. Not to pick obviously *g* but they look pretty.

*grins* I thought you'd like the selection of flowers.

Does your variety of thistle have a very stiff base under the flower head? These were like one solid piece. Really cool looking.

I did see some like that when I was looking it up but this one has a base that is one solid place like it was cut out of cardboard and placed beneath the flower head. Now that one very pretty though probably very sticky.

Maybe the ones you saw are the wild variety? These blue thistles are also used in bouquets, so I think they're man-made (if that's the right term)

Still love them both. *g*

You are welcome. I finally got my stuff together and remembered to include stamps and address in my luggage. Don't be surprised if you see another one in a couple of weeks from Seattle.*winks*
