A masterful gardener comes to Denver...
|Peter Korn: Swedish gardener extraordinaire|
I think this closeup of Peter's face pretty much says it all: incredible goodwill, openness and enthusiasm characterizes his spirit. His physical energy, however, is manifest only if you hear his presentation--or visit his vast gardens...and his incisive intellect which has propelled this youthful gardener to visit and grow a large proportion of the world's loveliest plants (and sell them into the bargain), well that is something you must visit his garden to really appreciate!

A few more shots, closeups and distance shots, to give you the faintest glimmering of what this Nordic deity is doing...I have blogged three times about him on one, two, three...nay FOUR times--click on those numbers to sample lots of pictures of his garden in April (and a late April at that--it was more like March but lots was in bloom nonetheless)...
|Throngs visiting on Nerd day!|
It is hard to convey the vastness of this garden in pictures...that's his home in the distance. The whole area is gardened.
