Spring in Tower Grove Park

Yesterday evening, Chickadee and I took a walk around Tower Grove Park. Like it’s next-door neighbor, the Missouri Botanical Garden, as well as Forest Park, we saw lots of tulips in bloom and many flowering trees. This setting is rather unique because of the faux ruins that are one of the central decorative features of the park. In addition to the many gazebos and pavilions, there are also other beautiful buildings on the property, too, as we really enjoyed our stroll!

Spring in St. Louis

I love spring in St. Louis. There are so many beautiful flowers and flowering trees everywhere you look! The two best places, in my opinion, to enjoy spring are 1.) Forest Park, especially the area around the Art Museum:

And 2.) The Missouri Botanical Garden, which is always gorgeous, but especially colorful at this time of year:

Where are your favorite places to enjoy the beauty of spring?

Winter and Spring

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!
