Botanical gardens Greenhouse St. Louis

The brick floors and walk ways were easy on the eye and the feet. The little trickling fountain surrounded by ferns was a favorite place.

As a child a friend moved to Arizona and she mailed me some of these little cacti.
This is a reflecting pool. Too early for water lillies.
This building looks impressive from a distance.
It is surprisingly intimate inside.

I love this place beyond reason.

Missouri Botanical gardens is simply amazing. This greenhouse is surrounded by lily ponds, or reflecting pools. The succulents and cacti inside are diverse. Some are potted and some are installed in dirt beds. The photos are from last spring. So long ago, I need to go back for the tulips again this year.
