It’s that time of year again – time for mini-sessions! I was afraid that we might get rained out this year but, luckily for all involved, there were plenty of lovely clouds but no rain at all. I had each family meet me at the Missouri Botanical Garden, this time in the Lehmann Rose Garden. I have to insert here that I am seriously amazed at the perpetual beauty of the Botanical Garden. No sooner has one area started to wilt than another area reaches its peak. I mean, this is just not a very pretty time of year. It’s the tail-end of fall so a lot of the leaves are gone, few flowers are blooming, the weather is icky. But the rose garden was just perfect – roses of so many different colors, lined with big beautiful trees on all sides. As a person who kills plants effortlessly, I do not know how they do it. I tip my hat to the MoBot gardeners. And as soon as you add a precious baby to the mix, beautiful photos abound (see how I got back on topic there? 🙂 ). So without further ado, take a look at the first family in the mini-session lineup – the L family.
