Re: Today in the garden-NOT

Our official destination was Defiance, MO. Took US 61 south and then  
southwest on State 94 parallel to the Missouri River. The sites we  
visited were in Defiance and Augusta, MO. The two nurseries we  
visited were Frisella and Wine Country Gardens - both worth a stop.  
As I understand it, when German immigrants saw the Missouri in that  
area, they were struck by resemblance to the Rhine river and decided  
that grapes would be a good commercial crop. There are vineyards all  
along the Missouri on both the north and south banks. The city of  
Hermann, MO, on the south bank of the river on State 19, is our  
favorite destination. The Stone Hill winery there is one of the  
biggest and oldest in the state, and has a nice German restaurant. We  
once did a drive that included wineries on both banks of the river!   
Also, the KATY trail, an old railroad bed, runs along the north bank  
of the Missouri. For those that ride bikes, an excellent experience.   
Would also recommend for those going down that way, a side trip to  
the Shaw Arboretum (now known as Shaw Nature Center) in Gray Summit,  
MO, just off Interstate 44 - a wonderful native plant/hiking experience.
