St. Louis In Bloom

Spring has sprung early, whether you were ready for it or not, and it would be quite a shame to miss out on it, especially here in Saint Louis. Soon it’s going to be a hundred degrees and a hundred percent humidity and we’ll all be lamenting the loss of those breezy days in the 80s. I’m not a big fan of that kind of regret, so we’ve been spending A LOT of time outside.

I’m in taking-pictures-of-flowers mode, which is working out well with the Natural Light challenge in this month’s Project MCP, because flowers were made for natural light. For my submission I decided to try the free blog-it board template from MCP:


A couple of those are from the neighborhood, but the orchids are from the Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. If you are in the area, I highly recommend going – it was stunning! Here are a few more of my favorite blooms from the Orchid Show (these are all SOOC because I had WAY too many pictures from the day to edit them all).

The Classic


The Old Man


The Flamenco Dancer


This one is clearly trying to eat you.


My daughter’s favorite: all orange!


Polka Dots


But looking at these pictures is not enough. Get outside and let the sunshine bloom you a little bit after the long (or even not so long) winter!
