Time to Smell the Posies
It was a misty day with just a little nip in the air. But that didn’t stop local anthophiles (flower lovers) from visiting the Missouri Botanical Garden this past weekend.
The array of iris is a spectacular reminder that spring has awakened once again. Pondering the posies in bloom brings a sure relief from COVID hangover. Viewing these colorful flower beds, shown below, might even encourage you to visit Henry Shaw’s old garden that’s been transformed to one of the finest in the country.

I Came, I Saw, I Bought
My herb order was ready for pick up at the Garden this weekend. They had the procedure as well planned as the D-Day invasion. Lucy and I joined the car line up in the parking lot to await our turn. Soon a masked young woman took my name, which was transmitted by phone to the pick up table. When we arrived, my order was immediately placed in the car. We were out of there lickity split.
In the boxes were Italian Basil,Thai Basil, Chives, Fennel, Lavender, Lemon Grass, Sage, Oregano, Parsley, Red Sorrel, Rosemary, Thyme, and Wild Ginger. I sent them back to the farm with Lucy. Now the work begins getting them in the ground.
