Flowers and Plants at a Christmas and Holiday Show - A Gallery
I love flowers anytime of the year. During the holidays, its fun to see them used as decorations. There are so many different types of decorations to make Christmas or any holiday, a more festive one. To use flowers, something from nature gives a wonderful and creative balance to things I think.
The Gardenland Express show at the Missouri Botanical Garden has so many different kinds of flowers, plants and trees. This hub is a collection of some of those flowers and plants you can find there. They also had several succulent plants as well. Some are close ups, some are farther away.
One of my very favorite things they had there, was a large poinsettia Christmas tree! I honestly don't know how they created that tree, but is beautiful and looks perfect.
There were different pines with descriptions of the trees also. The underlying focus was "trees", which is a theme the garden has carried on throughout the year. I am so thankful to see such a fun and brightly colored display of nature indoors, for people to see on a cloudy or snowy day during the colder months in the Midwest. This show runs November 23 through January 2 at Missouri Botanical Garden in Saint Louis Missouri. The name of the show is the Gardenland Express 2011 Holiday Flower and Train Show.
The flowers I show in this hub include poinsettias in many different colors, including bright pink, white, red, bright orange begonia flowers, green mum like flowers, succulent flowers, and evergreens, and more. One of my favorite as in the first photo in the wheelbarrow, is the beautiful cyclamen flowers. They are shown at the beginning and end of the hub in bright pink and also white.
Hope you enjoy the display of of flowers here and more.
