Botanical Garden in the winter

Yesterday I went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens.  I've been meaning to go for a while to get snow pis. So here they are:

This is my typical Ottoman Garden shot, but this time in the snow:

I call this one "Robin in Tree"

The Climatron

Iris Garden: this sign is about the only interesting thing in the garden during the winter

English Woodland Garden

Icicles above waterfall

Japanese Garden - yes, that is a pond under that snow

That is an island in the middle of the pond-- the name of the island escapes me at the moment-- it's only open to the public once a year during the Japanese festival.

Here you can tell it's a pond! Some of the ice has melted.

The ducks enjoy the ice

I have a picture of this fountain at this angle last spring.

Duck prints? Maybe geese?

When I got home, the sky by my house was pretty amazing. The blueness, the clouds, perfect.
