It’s that wonderful, confusing time of year in Denver, when colors start to pop and snow persists, and on sunny days you can walk down the street to your neighborhood flower garden — or mobile flower truck — and pick out a handful of blooms.
Starting in time for Mother’s Day and continuing throughout the spring and summer, I like to make morning or afternoon outings to these flower pick-ups, throwing in a walk and coffee and maybe brunch for good measure.
