I knew when I saw the snow-covered flowering crabapple trees at the Missouri Botanical Garden back in January that I would have to take a comparison picture when they were actually flowering in the spring. I got my chance yesterday…I love how different, and how beautiful, both views are! There is truly no bad season in Shaw’s Garden!
On Thursday, we finally got some snow. Not a lot, which was a disappointment to the children, but at least it wasn’t a tiny bit of snow mixed with some ice! And because there wasn’t too much, and the roads were pretty clear, I was able to take a walk around the Missouri Botanical Garden, which is uniquely beautiful when covered in snow:
Hopefully this first real snowfall for the winter won’t be the only real snowfall…I’m still hoping for a snow day at some point!
I’ve really been looking forward to seeing the Missouri Botanical Garden with snow on the ground. I was starting to think I would have to wait until next winter, but yesterday we had a decent amount of snow, and today the roads were clear, so off we went. It was just as beautiful as I had imagined…and then some!
