Up and at ’em this morning, freebie into the Missouri Botanical Gardens and into the Children’s Adventure Garden. The dragons were a calling so off we went.
We were welcomed by this firey friend. I can imagine that these sculptures would be a glowing wonder at night-time, but with the sun glinting off them, they are spectacular.
The day was hotter than hot even in the morning, but we hopped between shade and sun and drained the water bottle three times. The Botanical Gardens is a joy to visit anyway, but the blooming water lilies, ever hungry Koi carp and the wonderful giant lanterns were a treat.
My favourite dragons were the ones made with a massive assortment of white and blue traditional Chinese crockery. Plates, bowls, big and small were lashed together beautifully to make a fantastic spectacle of a pair of identical dragons.
