Cold Sunday Winter morning and I am exploring some of the other gardening forums (other than daylily).

Thank you for sharing your pics.

So much to see there. I visited way before the Chiholy glass and in I think April.

Edit - I guess you need to click on them to enlarge them.

Here are some pics (copyright)

Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures, all. Thank you.

Oh, wow! Looks like it would be worth a trip to St. Louis from Dallas specifically to see this place. I frequently use their web database and love it. Nice to have photos to go along with the data. Thank you!
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Lovely shots, what month were they taken in? My daughter's BF is from St Louis and we have talked about visiting the Bot Garden.
