Since my last update, a lot of things have been going on behind the scenes. I moved, started a new job, got engaged, and bought a new house…all in the last 5 weeks!
Before this coming weekend’s big move (into the new house), my friend Kara and I decided to sneak in a visit to one of our favorite places, the Missouri Botanical Gardens.
Even though it’s May, the heat and humidity made us wonder if we’d skipped a few months and had ended up in July. I spent a lot of time hiding out in the shaded areas, where I caught a glimpse of a bumble bee pollinating flowers.
There was also an entire garden dedicated to Irises where I took advantage of my macro lens.
Our last stop before we headed out was the climatron, where we captured some more tropical plants. Given the weather, it was almost a reprieve from the heat and humidity outside.
