Prepare for your retinas to be seared with awesomeness. Spring at the Missouri Botanical Garden…
Many beautiful varieties of tulips.
Tulips are Spy Garden’s official favorite flower.
The petals are edible (I’ve heard)…
They certainly look…
Spy Sister (aka Aunt Spy) and I enjoyed tiptoeing through the tulips and…
The many sculptures in the garden.
Some are more modern…
Some more classical…
I love these sheep sculptures.
And this angel is another favorite.
The Linnean House is the oldest greenhouse west of the Mississippi.

And outside the Linnean House
There are many old and huge trees at the garden…
Many different textures…
This one reminds me of an elephant.
This one’s sort of creepy.
Spiral Tree (and more sculpture!)
Spring “Confettti” is Everywhere
Trees with big sweeping branches
Looks like a Fairy’s House
Same House, Different View
Phlox Moss (say that three times fast)
We also visited…
The St. Louis Herb Society Sale

Two types of eucalyptus were among my finds!
Spy Sister got some too!
Back in the garden, we skipped the

A Perfect Spring Day at the Garden!
