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"
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.
