from missouri botanical garden
J and I visited Missouri Botanical Garden, Wednesday. I took so many photos I am putting together two posts.
Wreath inspiration is the subject for this post. The next will have gorgeous flowers and miniature trains and villages.

The wreaths were lined along two walls. I enjoyed photographing them. The white wall was the perfect backdrop. The wreaths will be auctioned to benefit Missouri Botanical Garden.
On the site, there are 13 wreaths. I thought I had a photo of all of them, but I must have missed one. To see the missing wreath, FOREST FANTASY by designer Dennis McMichael of Kirkwood Florist, please click the above link. There is other information about the wreaths at that link, also.
We had lunch at Sassafras.
My choice was the English Woodland Garden Salad. J’s was Strassenfest Bratwurst Sandwich. My salad was wonderful and J liked the sandwich.
The photographer at play.
Come back by the Back Porch, for more photos of Missouri Botanical Garden.
