Here are some recent pictures from around the City of St. Louis (click on pictures for larger versions). I hope you agree that it doesn't need to be sunny or warm to get out and enjoy the scenery!

Park. Created by park founder Henry Shaw in

This sculpture, along with the nearby turtle, are the works of Bob
Cassilly, creator of the amazing St. Louis City Museum.
Located in the playground of Lafayette Park.
|"Edge of the Park"|
This iron fence is located along the eastern edge of Lafayette Park in St. Louis.
The fence and stone gates were designed by Francis Tunica and erected in 1869.
The Rockery in St. Louis' Lafayette Park was built in 1866. According to the park's website,
"Only one Iron Bridge remains of two that replaced rustic bridges lost in the Cyclone of 1896."
