From the Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden:
This was my favorite; love the loooong tendrils
Purple and white
Spy Sister taking a pic with her iphone; taking way clearer shots than I got with my Nikon. (indoor-photography is not my forte)
This weird orchid (not currently blooming) was quite large; those bulbous things were soft-ball size
And outside at the Missouri Botanical Garden…
Reflection pools reflecting mostly gray
But it’s not all gray…
MBG; my happy place!
Power (the sculpture matches the print of Spy Sister’s purse, see? ;)
Cool tree (forgot what variety)
Beautiful bark; a Chinese elm
And back in the land of Spy Garden…
Little jaune paille de vertus onions (from last year!) going to replant as onion sets
Who needs tv or video games when there’s books?
Dexie in Spy Garden
Very cool WWI helmet on display at the library; I think it is Prussian
Delicious vegan peanut butter cup at Frida’s
And in Squirrely Garden…
Last Saturday they began installing the deer fence. They were able to mount most of the fence to the existing fence.
By “they” I mean Smoochie and a few other parents and staff. I only have these few photos as I was not in attendance for this fence-install (thankfully; it was freezing!)
Now that you’ve seen how fun it is to share how gardens grow, check out…
