Last Tuesday 6 of us went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis. It was a beautiful, sunny day, warm enough for short sleeves and no jackets. Here are some of my favorite pictures from that afternoon.
Since it is a botanical garden, everything is labeled, which I really like.
I was surprised by the number of flowers that were still blooming. I don’t have anything still blooming. Even my mums are frost bit. I don’t remember what this plant is.
Again, I don’t remember for sure if this is a Japanese maple, but it looks like one. I should have taken photos of the signs, too!
I took lots of pictures, but this is enough for today. Stay tuned for the next edition tomorrow!
