Sundays in My City

<Unknown Mami
Have you heard of Unknown Miami? She has a delightful blog where she shares photos of her city on Sundays. She invites the rest of us to link up with her and share some of our own city's photos. Click on the logo to visit Sundays in My City!

Here are a few of my favorite places to visit in the city of Saint Louis. I actually live in a suburb called Wildwood, but my pictures so far have been of some of the most exciting places in the "City."

Our Botanical Gardens park spans acres and acres of lush plants, flowers, ponds, sculptures and architecture. Here is my favorite pool.



And, let's not forget the symbol of St. Louis, the Arch... a view from the riverbank!



A day at the sculpture park is filled with surprises in all sizes. Eye See You!!!!



There is so much to see at Faust Park Butterfly House in Chesterfield, my neighbors!



Hope you enjoyed your visit. If you'd like to read about and see more pictures, please visit my friend, Dawn, at BECAUSE I SAID SO. She recently brought her family for a visit and has done a fantastic job of advertising for St. Louis on her blog! I'll be back next week with more on Sundays in My City!!!

Thanks for sharing your city. I haven't been to St. Louis for many years....my son went to the University of Southern Illinois, so I have spent some time there. Also, I work for Edward Jones so I talk to people there every day.

How did I not see this until now? Did you not link up on the MckLinky on my blog. Oh, please, please do if you decide to do SIMC again so that everyone else can see your wonderful pictures.

This post was so fun. I LOVE the giant eyeball.

Oh, I'm so glad I finally saw these pics. Thank you for sharing.
