We had a snow day in St Louis on thursday! And that means I took a snowy walk through the Botanical Gardens on friday. What a beautiful morning! My friend and I managed to make it to the gardens while the snow was still fresh and undisturbed, making for pristine and peaceful landscapes. Although there are days when this Texas girl misses year-round warmth, beauty like this makes me truly appreciate the four seasons. I took these photos in the Japanese, Chinese, and Ottoman Gardens. Obviously I did not photograph myself, that photo credit goes to my friend Amber (thanks friend!).
