One Day In May

Since moving to the St Louis area last year,
it has been a real joy to explore much of what there is to do here. 
I've learned that this is called a '20-minute city' 
because you can get to almost any attraction in about 20 minutes.

One of my favorite places to visit is the Missouri Botanical Garden.

One cool, overcast day in May, the sights were as beautiful as ever.

The azaleas were ablaze with color.

There were places to sit, relax 
and enjoy the richness of the day.

Other views of the Garden that day included...

The Missouri Botanical Gardens and their family of attractions, 
are amazing places to visit any time of year,
and at least one of them is sure to be a short 20 minutes away.



  1. I REALLY want to go through the MOBOT, tried to convince nephew getting married to do it during the growing season so I could go to the garden. Nope, it was a March wedding. He does have a sister who isn't married yet.......hahaha I guess I could go and visit my brother and his family without a wedding reason.

  2. It's so cool that this garden is so close by. It takes about an hour's drive to get to the Oregon Garden so I don't go very often. Beautiful photos!

  3. That's a lovely garden - and if everyone's 20 minutes away, no excuses! I'd be there all the time.


I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
