Turkey and Ladybug’s entries in the Missouri Botanical Garden Lego Buildtanical Brick Challenge finally forced us to go to the Botanical Garden, something we’ve been meaning to do for a while, but have just never gotten around to. This also fit in well with our botany studies, even if we are on a break from our regular school work!
There were many beautiful things to see. One of the biggest attractions was the Climatron, which houses the Nature Connects exhibit:
The Temperate House was especially beautiful:
And the Ottoman Garden may have been my favorite of all the gardens (although I also really enjoyed the Victorian District):
There’s so much beautiful art and architecture on the property:
And tons of water features:
Of course, there are beautiful plants from all over the world!
And a fleur-de-lis made out of flowers, which is humorous on several levels!
We saw almost everything while we were there…the only thing we missed that I really wanted to see were the German gardens. Oh well…now we have an excuse to go back!
