This last weekend, S and I ran away to St. Louis for a fun trip to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Despite the fact that it is already October, fall has barely sprung here in Missouri. Still, Saturday dawned perfectly overcast, and we managed to find in the gardens a few trees with beautiful fall leaves. In the meantime, there were still plenty of late summer blooms and LOTS of insects buzzing, swinging, and spinning. Although S and I both wished for a little more autumnal weather, we were still happy to point our cameras at things and snap shutters!
