49. Visit the CSU Flower Garden

The CSU Annual Flower Trial Garden is a must do for your list. Particularly if you’re looking for a way to spend a relaxing afternoon in Fort Collins without an agenda. Of course if you’re a flower lover or a horticulturalist, you probably know much more about the Flower Garden than I do.

If you visit today (as in early spring), you’ll only see a very small part of the beauty that is produced throughout the summer here. If you visit the official Flower Garden website, you’ll see what you have to look forward to at the end of the summer. Thousands of flowers are planted here from late May all the way through October. They are organized by color, and type for comparison and ascetics and produce a beautiful collage of natural splendor.

Be sure to stop by a few times this summer to see the changing flowers throughout the season.

Aside form studying the different botanical varieties, it’s also a great place to throw down a picnic blanket, read a good book in the sun, or take pictures for a special occasion.
