Pictured above is the central pool which can be found in front of the climatron. Dale Chilluly's Walla Walla Onions float on the water there amidst the water lilies which are presently in bloom. Equally beautiful are the lotus flowers, which we discovered in the Japanese section of the garden.
There were many of them blooming in the pond of the Japaneses garden, many of them at the end of their blooming period. Probably the best time to see them is in the middle of June.
I am now writing this posting as the rain is coming down outside in torrents. We are planning to leave St.Louis tomorrow, come rain or sunshine!
