St. Louis Arch

The St. Louis Arch was designed by Finnish-American architect, Eero Saarinen and German-American structural engineer Hannskari Bandel in 1947.  Construction began in 1963 and the Arch opened to the public in June of 1967. It cost 13 million dollars at the time (approximately 96 million today) and is the tallest man-made monument in the US at 630 feet.  An awesome sight and a "must see" attraction when you visit the great city of St. Louis.

Macro Monday "Orchids"

I was in St. Louis this weekend and visited the Botanical Gardens.  They were having an "Orchid Show", and it was amazing.  Such gorgeous flowers.

Bluer Than Blue

Blue, but no "blues" here
Spring's joy bursts forth suddenly
Capture the spirit

Wedding Weekend

Come, live life as one
Two hearts and souls intertwined
Blessings of true love

My daughter is getting married this weekend. It has been a busy few weeks, and I have missed visiting and commenting on your blogs.  As soon as the weekend is past, I'll "catch up" with everyone.
