If you live anywhere near St. Louis, you must go see their Botanical Gardens.
Jade & I have been twice and every time we are more in more in awe of this place each time! I am dying to go this spring to see their bulb beds.
So - since we're expecting more snow in central IL - I thought you'd like to feast your eyes on some tropical plants & what is to come later this year!
Their Climatron is just filled with the most amazing tropical plants! We have never been to Hawaii so this place is a little taste of what I think Hawaii is like. It's just awesome!
Hand blown glass is all over the place - stunning every time!
A HUGE palm tree.
Gorgeous waterfalls and ponds filled with fish.
I don't like tomatoes, but even I could appreciate the huge size of these.
The size of their hanging baskets are amazing!
A huge hand blown chandy at the entrance - this thing is amazing!
Gosh - I never dreamed in my younger years that one hot date for Jade & I would be a day at the Botanical Gardens. I don't know if this makes me officially old, or if plants are the new hip thing! However, I'm digging it! Abbie - I call one of your donated Abbie days to my kids to be this spring so Jade & I can go see some tulips - thank you in advance :)
