I can't say enough about this place. If you visit St. Louis, you must make time to come here. It is so lovely and peaceful. The orchid exhibit was worth the extra ticket. Also, don't miss the Temperate house–just beautiful!

St Louis had just had some really cold weather so I wasn't expecting much. There was an orchid show going on that didn't particularly interest me. I wandered the grounds and was totally enchanted with the beauty, ease of getting around, and being delighted with each display, garden and building.
