Structure and Texture
I wanted to plop myself down and sit a spell on this fellow's lap (he had a great view of some camellias), but we had just begun our walk through the Linnean House, and people were behind us on the path.
Isn't this ballerina a graceful accent for the tulip bed?
I hope you enjoy these highlights of our visit this past weekend to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis. The mosaic sculptures of Niki de Saint Phalle in the gardens really captured our attention and added a new dimension to our stroll through familiar territory. As you can see, people were encouraged to really "get into" the art. I only wish we could have been photographing our grandson instead of a bunch of strangers. He is still in Florida. I'll be seeing you soon, Micah!
