Botanical Garden Wine Tasting

The Missouri Botanical Garden is celebrating their 150th anniversary with Garden Nights! Every Thursday you can sample wine and microbreweries from 5-9pm, as well as stroll the different gardens. We went this Thursday during an unusual 75 degree night. It was probably one of our most favorite date nights. With a microbrewery I.P.A and Spicy Blonde in hand we stayed for 3 hours and took what seems like 500 inspirational photos for our own backyard.

For part of 2006, the Missouri Botanical Garden featured "Glass in the Garden", with glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly placed throughout the garden. Four pieces were purchased to remain at the gardens.

Herb Garden

Japanese Garden

Victorian Garden

Not too bad for a camera phone, right?

A real flower clock
