2018 Japanese Festival

Last year, I went into great detail about all the things we saw at the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Japanese Festival. This year, I’m just going to share pictures…lots of pictures! This continues to be my second-favorite event at the Garden…the Garden Glow will always be my very favorite!

The Linnean House–September

Today was a busy day at the Missouri Botanical Garden, because it was the first day of the Japanese Festival! The Linnean House was pretty quiet when they first opened, however, which made it the perfect time to get my photo for the month:

Flora Borealis

The Missouri Botanical Garden has a special summer exhibition again this year, and we had the chance to visit Flora Borealis on Monday night.

I always love having an opportunity to visit the garden in the evening, because it’s a completely different experience. And the way they lit up favorite garden landmarks is totally different from any of the other nighttime events we’ve been to!

Flora Borealis is open for another few weeks, so you still have time to stop by and check it out!

The Linnean House–August

Tonight we had a rare evening look at the Linnean House while we waited for our entrance to Flora Borealis:

 

 

The Linnean House–July

Originally, I had planned on our going to “Flora Borealis” this month, which would have provided me an opportunity for a rare evening photo of the Linnean House. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out, so I took a standard morning picture yesterday…everything is definitely in full bloom!

Next month I should get my evening photo, because I now have our “Flora Borealis” tickets in my possession!

Chickadee Thursday

Chickadee, Moose, and I spent the morning at the Missouri Botanical Garden. We decided to take a ride on the tram, which is always a lot of fun, because we always learn something new!

The Ottoman Garden at the Missouri Botanical Garden

Out of all of the gardens at the Missouri Botanical Garden, I think the Ottoman Garden may be my favorite. It is so colorful, especially in the spring and summer, and so peaceful with the fountain running in the center. I think my favorite thing about it, though, is its size…it’s fairly small, which gives it a nice, cozy feeling!
