Happy New Year! Missouri Botanical Gardens

On New Year's Day, our family decided we wanted one last warm holiday outing. Rather than see the (expensive) very impressive light display at night, we headed to the Missouri Botanical Gardens for the Flower and Train show.

Gardenland Express
This year's theme for the Gardenland Express was "Gathering for the Feast" so several foods were highlighted, like cranberries, vanilla, citrus, and honey. There were also beautiful table displays for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa and recipes for common dishes.
Climatron: Powder Puff plant, waterfall, rainforest buttress tree root house
Then we headed to the climatron dome for tropical plants, the kids' discovery play area, and an adjacent temperate/mediterranean garden greenhouse. The kids loved all the trains, running water, and cooking and play areas.

Hope this warms you up!! Does your city have an indoor greenhouse garden?
