Chinese Days at the Botanical Gardens

Filed under: other gardens — Butterflygirl @ 6:10 pm

We went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens for Chinese Days again this year. I’m not usually at the garden this time of year so there were different things blooming than what I am used to seeing there. Mostly tulips.

In the morning our arbor/trellis/whatever-you-call-it blew over in the morning and my husband had to set it back up before we could leave:

This is the beautiful pond area in the Chinese garden. Both the bridge and the overlook were carved in China from white marble:

Here is the parade just as it was finishing up:
