Another Look at Spring in the Japanese Garden

I know I already shared some pictures of our evening stroll through the Japanese Garden at the Missouri Botanical Garden earlier in the week, but it was such a lovely experience, I just had to share a few more!


Springtime Stroll

Last night, the Missouri Botanical Garden offered a somewhat rare opportunity…they had special evening hours to allow the community a chance to see some of their beautiful spring blooms, particularly the cherry blossoms in the Japanese Garden. Outside of special events, we don’t really get a chance to visit the Garden as the sun is going down, so it was a real treat to be there at that time of day, and the flowers were beautiful!

It was nice to see such a big crowd in attendance…I felt like I was getting a good idea of what it might be like for cherry blossom viewing in Japan, or at the very least, in Washington D.C.!

The English Woodland Garden–April

I’m really excited about this month’s picture of the English Woodland Garden, because I had the rare opportunity to take the photo in the evening!

We enjoyed a nice springtime stroll through the Garden, and especially the Japanese Garden, where the cherry trees are in full bloom, tonight. It was nice not only to be able to capture a different light in the English Woodland Garden while we were there, but also to see signs of spring everywhere!

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!

The English Woodland Garden–February

It’s hard to believe on this beautiful, springlike Sunday that less than a week ago, we had windchills of -25!
