Temporary Greeter

Tourist attraction. Local attraction. Research facility. Open air delight.

The Garden.

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.

This handsome fellow welcomed visitors during the Chinese Lantern Festival several years ago.
