Today was our 34th wedding anniversary. We decided to go somewhere where we could take photos, and one of the best places for that is our Missouri Botanical Gardens. The show of lilies there today was just beautiful! We have some lilies at our house but I wanted to take lots of photos of these today as a reminder to plant some of these someday.
Several other couples were at the gardens today getting married
and I couldn't resist snapping a few photos.
There was an exhibit of photos in the entry with some really beautiful shots of St Louis Architecture. I found out later after we got home that they are in a book. And guess who will be buying it. Bob and I both really love to admire buildings and churches and the history behind them.
They have been working on this building called
The Linnean House
the last few times we have been to the gardens.
Today it was finished. Isn't it beautiful!
This glass ornament on the gate has been there for several years now
and I can't help wondering how it has held up through all of our terrible storms this year.
I wonder if they remove it at the end of the day.
Doesn't the gate look strange from this angle. A little eye trickery.
We don't always walk down this way, but we did today.
This cute little house is just a tower to climb up and get a little better view.
There is a maze garden right next to it, but it was very overgrown.
I wondered why...because it is very attractive when it is trimmed.
And they do a great job of keeping the gardens beautiful at all times of the year.
Except maybe in the winter. I am not sure if it is even open in the winter.
I sometimes look at the base of trees and observe how oddly shaped they are.
I know they do a lot of pruning at the gardens...
much more so than most of us
trim our trees at our homes,
so I am not sure
if this has anything to do
with the shape at the bases or not.
Bob didn't know I was snapping photos of him today.
I love this one of him walking through the English Garden.
The day went by way too fast...........
