And just like, we’ve made it through another series of “MoBot through the Year” photos!
Just kidding. Kind of. When I saw the Linnean House in miniature at the Gardenland Express Holiday Flower and Train Show, I knew I had to get a picture of it. Here’s the real picture to round out 2018:
I’m still considering my options for my fifth year of monthly photos at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Right now, the Ottoman Garden and the English Woodland Garden at the top of my list, but you’ll have to wait until 2019 to see what I choose!
Originally, I had planned on our going to “Flora Borealis” this month, which would have provided me an opportunity for a rare evening photo of the Linnean House. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out, so I took a standard morning picture yesterday…everything is definitely in full bloom!
Next month I should get my evening photo, because I now have our “Flora Borealis” tickets in my possession!
It’s been about a month since we last visited the Missouri Botanical Garden, and in that time, the view outside of the Linnean House sure has changed! The trees and bushes are finally fully green, but the flower beds by the reflecting pools are bare again, as they’re between plantings. I’m looking forward to seeing what will be growing there next month!
