Scenery from Saint Louis and some public parks in Missouri.
I have been living in St. Louis for a very long time, but I did not take many pictures of the landscapes in St. Louis, beside the Gateway Arch! But now, it's almost time for me to leave STL, I need to have some pictures of the city that I called home for the past 25 years. So, here are some pictures that I took recently. There are a lot more places in STL and Missouri that I need to visit and take pictures. I'll post these pictures in the future. Please come back! STL is a relatively big city in the Midwest (2nd behind Chicago). It's a lovely city with all the facilities of a big city and the atmosphere of a small town. St. Louis has football (Ram), baseball (Cardinal), hockey (Blues)... and the world headquarter of the biggest beer company of the USA, Anheuser-Busch company.

Summer flowers (part 2).
I'd uploaded 60 more pictures of Summer flowers to my flower site. These are common flowers that bloom during hot Summer. I had included more pictures of butterflies and bees on flowers. You can find some wild flowers and water lilies in this page. Anyone loving zinnia should check out this page. Beautiful zinnia pictures from a zinnia collection at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri. Left picture is a tropical hibiscus in my garden.

Summer flowers.
I have been busy taking pictures of flowers this Summer. Can you believe it, the Summer is over! This is the first page of the summer flowers, and many more will be added later. You can find many different flowers blooming in Summer including annuals, perennials, and tropicals. There are always some butterflies or bees around the flowers, therefore, they also included in these pictures. Please come back to my flower site to see more Summer flowers in the next few weeks. In this attached picture, some glass arts by Chihuly displaying at the water lily pond in the Missouri Botanical Garden.
