Tourist attraction. Local attraction. Research facility. Open air delight.
I’ve heard, and used, most of these to describe The Missouri Botanical Garden.
Regular followers of this blog are aware that I visit often and dot this space with photos from those visits.
One of the many things I like about my visits? Each one is different. There is always something new, or perhaps I see a plant at a different stage of development, or in a new light.
The staff works hard to make some of this happen. They erect seasonal items to enhance the plantings. Often these have a theme — sometimes connected to a festival.
