Missouri has a very short spring, and it is mostly wet and rainy. I’ve heard many people here say we go right from winter to summer, and that’s mostly true. Yesterday was one of those idyllic spring days where it is sunny and 75 degrees, everything is colorful and luminous, and it just takes your breath away. I was very blessed (thank you Jesus) to be able to paint, even though my mother was in the hospital because she fell twice. (I went to see her last night).
Tower Grove Park is a Victorian era park that was built by Henry Shaw. It was originally planned to be a private estate. It has charming old bridges and pavilions in it. I couldn’t help but admire this little foot bridge with the beautiful pink and white dogwoods in bloom nearby.
