David and I went to the Denver Botanic Gardens to check out the Deborah Butterfield: The Nature of Horses exhibit. We were prepared to pay, but it ended up being a free day at the gardens, so we were pleasantly surprised, especially given that it wasn’t crowded on a gorgeous September afternoon.
We were thoroughly impressed with the horse sculptures which were made of wood, then bronzed, and then painted to look like drift wood. I would have never guessed that the sculptures were bronzed and painted. The horses looked just like they were made of drift wood. They were quite amazing.
The gardens were nice as well. We enjoyed a light snack at the outdoor restaurant and admired a variety of beautiful flowers. What a pleasant Saturday afternoon in Denver! ETB
