Donna, we visited the Mo Botanical Gardens which I had never visited this 
early in the gardening season.  If I had a choice, I would go later in the 
summer/early fall.  They were still planting but nevertheless, loved it.  Japanese 
Iris in the Japanese garden were awesome!  Also, viewed parts of Shaw, 4 home 
gardens, 2 nurseries, river ride in Hannibal, dinner theater and rode the 
downtown of St Louis at night.  The arch is always a sight.

it was huge and flopped but not nearly as my Johnsons Blue and Brookside.  I 
think I spoke to soon.
    Loved my garden when I got home.  The digitalis are huge and so beautiful 
as are the roses.  I didn't get my roses sprayed before I left and have 
blackspot on a couple.  I am not good at spraying but made a self vow to do a 
better job this year :-(  Couple of lilies are open also.

outstanding conifer collection and all cared for by volunteers) and two private 
gardens in Farley and Oelwein.  Lots of miles and a full day of gardens.
    Our temps are predicted to get into the 90s this week & the humidity is
