The Drum Bridge Through the Year

I never did decide on just one angle for my Drum Bridge photos this year, so I have two galleries to share, and I love them both! The changes throughout the year were very obvious, and I am always struck by the awesome beauty of the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Japanese Garden!

Seriously, there is truly no bad place from which to photograph this bridge, and every season has its own unique beauty, from snow to changing leaves, and everything in between!

I’m already looking forward to photographing the Linnean House monthly next year!

The Drum Bridge–December

And just like that, another year of taking pictures at the Missouri Botanical Garden comes to an end. I’ve really enjoyed watching the scenery around the Drum Bridge in the Japanese Garden change throughout the year, and I’m excited about next year’s photo project…stay tuned!

The Drum Bridge–October

I can’t believe I’m already 10 months into taking photos of the Drum Bridge this year! I also can’t believe that it’s October 10th, and it doesn’t look even remotely like fall…

The Drum Bridge–September

The Missouri Botanical Garden’s Japanese Festival is this weekend, and the Drum Bridge was busier than we’ve ever seen it!

The Drum Bridge–July

I was really starting to worry that we wouldn’t make it the Missouri Botanical Garden this month…it’s been so hot, no one has wanted to leave the house, much less walk around outside. Yesterday it was a bit cooler (although drizzly and very humid), so we finally made it. The Japanese Garden looks almost as pretty when it’s raining as it does when it’s snowing…we really enjoyed watching the raindrops fall on the water!

The Drum Bridge–May

I wasn’t expecting the difference in how the Drum Bridge looked last month compared to how it looks it now to be so great…you can hardly see the bridge for all the new leaves in the first picture!
