This past weekend I made my first trip of the season out to the Missouri Botanical Garden. It was definitely worth braving the heat to make it out to one of my favorite places in St. Louis!
With the waterlilies being replaced with displays for the Lantern Festival, and the lilies being a favorite spot for the dragonflies to stop and sun, I didn’t get to chase as many dragonflies as I usually do. The vibrant colors of the flowers more than made up for it.
And per my usual, I had to get some black and white shots in.
I thought the black and white really made the texture of the calla lilies pop.
(And after finishing at MOBOT, I visited The Container Store and Whole Foods, two more great reasons to make a trip out to St. Louis).
