Parks & Blooms

Discover the beauty of St. Louis Metro natural areas



The purpose of this site is to share pictures of beautiful scenery I have found in local neighborhoods, parks and natural areas. It is intended for the enjoyment of anyone who likes to see the loveliness around us. Browse the pages and get some ideas of places that you can visit too, and see the beauty for yourself!

I have added maps and lists of parks and gardens in St. Louis County and surrounding areas, since that is where I have visited most. I am also adding pictures of gardens in other towns that I visit when I travel. I will be adding more pages and photos as I explore more parks and gardens, so check back often. Coming soon: some of my best photos will be displayed on a dedicated page.

Let me know any comments or questions. Use the form on the About page to get in touch with me.

Thanks to my friends for your encouragement of my hobby!
