A Last Look at the Orchid Show

Yesterday was the final day of this year’s Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden. I already shared a few pictures, but here is one last look at the beautiful flowers that were on display this year:

Here’s a look at a few of the highlights from this year’s Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden:

I love that no matter how many years we go, or how many times in one year we visit, we always see something new!

Spring at the Chicago Botanic Garden

When we visited the Chicago Botanic Garden in January, I knew we would have to go back in the spring if we had the chance. The final day of our weekend getaway was that chance. It was nice to see signs of spring everywhere…we had already moved on to summer in St. Louis by that point. My favorite part of the whole visit, though, was the beautiful field of poppies, something I don’t think I’ve ever seen before!

Searching for Spring in St. Louis

I think we can all agree this has been a rough winter. Thankfully, St. Louis hasn’t had snowstorm upon snowstorm like so many places around the country have, but we also haven’t had our normal spring, either. I am hopeful, however, that this morning was the last morning I will wake up to freezing temperatures (until next fall), and today actually ended up being a beautiful day, so I went searching for spring, and I found it in Forest Park!

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?
