A Little Bit of Mo Bot

Saturday morning it was too gorgeous to be inside. I talked my son into going to the Missouri Botanical Gardens with me and exploring some of the displays that they have for the Chinese Lantern Festival while we were there. Even during the day, some of these things are quite impressive!

As soon as you enter the Gardens you are greeted by an enormous blue fountain with a dragon and fish. And it only gets better from there. I was really impressed with the Porcelain Dragons. (There are two of them! Even more impressive!) and they are made out of porcelain cups, saucers, plates and spoons and they are all tied together. 

They also have a variety of Buddhas and they were just outstanding.  They have a walkway of crescent moons and stars which I am sure is just beautiful at night to walk through.

I love being able to go up to MoBot on a whim and walk around. It’s one of my favorite places in STL to visit. If you are ever here, be sure to check them out. They have several special events throughout the year. (Their Orchid Festival is a favorite of mine!)
