Shaw's Garden

The weather wizards relented! We had all the sunshine we could imagine at the Missouri Botanical Garden (Shaw's Garden).

In front of the Climatron, statues by Carl Milles, whose fountains I have always liked. I think prototypes for some of these are at Cranbrook near Carol's house.


Some of the Garden's collected works in glass by Dale Chihuly.

Ruby with Henry Shaw, founder of the gardens.

High school art class from nearby school.

I found the Japanese gardens amazingly beautiful!

I'm glad that Chihuly survived the storms! I'm a sucker for a Japanese garden -- this one looks amazing!
