Missouri Botanical Garden

Garden Glow | Missouri Botanical Garden Dec 2020

Missouri Botanical Garden puts on an amazing Garden Glow each year. This was our first year visiting and we had a fabulous time! It is worth the trip from Cape Girardeau and we will certainly go again in a few years. We visited on December 12, 2020.

Missouri Botanical Garden and Legos 2013

This is a slideshow of photos from our visit in 2013 and there was a lego display. The Missouri Botanical Gardens sure do make great efforts to change up the gardens for regular visitors to find something different of interest.

December 12, 2020

In 2020, I did take my "big camera" and took so many photos! We arrived just before dark. Due to Covid-19, we had to sign up for a time slot to enter which were every 15 minutes. It was a great system and kept the groups of people moving through the park without being too overwhelming of a crowd. This is the first thing you see when you walk outside the building.

I feel the photos are self-explanatory and so I will just share them below without writing text. Enjoy!

I have SO many good ones and I just cannot share them all! But here comes more.

Near the end the lights went through the the song "A Patridge in a Pear Tree" and it was fun trying to find them all. Some of them were easier to spot than others.

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me 2 Turtle Doves.

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me 3 French Hens.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 4 Calling Birds.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 5 Golden Rings.

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 6 Geese a Laying.

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me 7 Swans a Swimming.

 

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 8 Maids a Milking. (oops, I failed to snap a photo of them!

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 9 Ladies Dancing.

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 10 Lords a Leaping.

Then at the end we had the little drummer boy!
