This fabulous garden was founded in 1859 and is the nation's oldest botanical garden in continuous operation. It is a National Historic Landmark. It is located in St. Louis but has a global influence with field projects in over 35 countries. We needed much more than the day we had to fully cover it. We decided to walk through the major entry areas and then take the tram to the Japanese Garden (to be covered in a separate blog post). Once again we had the pleasure of having Diane with us.
Diane and I were whopped, hot and ready for a rest. Tom, on the other hand, was still ready to go! He took off for the Climatron. The images below were all taken inside that huge geodesic dome.
