Day of the Dead

dayofthedead9113Took a trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens for flower pictures and happened on a display of “Dia de los Muertos” a Mexican tradition that celebrates those who have departed Oct 31st to Nov 2nd. . They had several alters set up – one to pets, one to a vet from Afghanistan; and one to a house lost to the Black Forest Fire. The displays were interesting. As you walked into the gardens there were 2 decorated coffins. One of which is above.
