Stop and smell the orchids
Above: The Japanese Garden is a popular destination at the Missouri Botanical Garden. (They call it MOBOT for short.) Notice the snow on March 27 - are we having crazy weather this year or what?
Last weekend, I visited the Orchid Show at the MOBOT in St. Louis. They claim to be the oldest botanical garden in continuous operation in the U.S. The say it's "An oasis of great beauty in the city (and) is also a place of research, conservation and learning."
I met one brother and one sister and we went together. Besides the beauty of the place, it was an opportunity for three siblings to enjoy fellowship together.
MOBOT is proud of its orchid collection and you can read about it here.
