St. Louis Flowers
The Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis is truly one of America's treasures. This marvelous place has gardens of all types, ranging from a formal Victorian-era garden to a Japanese garden to gardens for your backyard. It is an absolute visual treat.
I must say the people of St. Louis know what they have. We visited on a Saturday morning, and there were long queues to enter. You might have thought it was the box-office line for the summer's hot movie.
Here are some photos I took during our visit. Just click on any photo to enlarge it.
The towns we visited in Alaska all had lots of beautiful flowers, in parks, in town squares, in hanging baskets, and in flower boxes in front of shops. The photos below are from all of the ports and cities we visited on our trip. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did taking the photographs.
