Thinking of Spring – Fort Collins Gardens

Old Town Yard

If you are anything like me, this time of year you are getting cabin fever big time, anxiously awaiting for spring for the first signs of greenery. To hold you over, peruse the pictures of some of my favorite gardens in Fort Collins. Most of these I took last June In the westside neighborhood.

I do know there are fabulous gardens all over Fort Collins. This year I hope to photograph some more.

Linden Press

No Grass!

  • Having the spring fever big time! Beautiful gardens you have there:)

    Nice shots-does csu sell any of their seeds or plantings?

  • I used to walk to work from 115 East Mulberry to the Rocky Mountain Bank building, and there was (probably is, but maybe changed) a house with a pink and purple paint job that stopped a little short of being a Painted Lady. The owner had done a wonderful job of using concrete (painted pink, if memory serves) to reduce the amount of grass that had to be cared for. I went by once and the woman who lived there was outside. Her name was Ida. I complimented her on the landscaping, and she informed me that there was still too much grass.

  • Kip…I will see if I can find it. Sounds like it may have been on Mason or Remington?

  • I’m looking at 203 S. Howes on Google Street View, and that’s very close. Perhaps that huge thing next to the house (marked “Linden” in a popup) is where Ida’s house used to be. Or perhaps “Linden” is it, but it’s been landscaped so much I can’t recognize it.
