The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.
Hanna Rion

When my mom was here this weekend we visited the Missouri Botanical Gardens. I had never been there and as a gardener, I knew she'd love it. It really was so beautiful and a lovely way to spend the afternoon!

Awesome pics! I love going there!
My old roommate does PR there so I always got to hear about the Garden.

Their Chihuly exhibit a few years ago was spectacular!

You got some great pictures. We really are lucky, we have an amazing botanical garden. I haven't been there this year yet, and I so wanted to go Monday but it rained on me. meh.
