Chaos, meaning complexity in nature, and also the natural, usual state of my garden!

I love Missouri Botanical Gardens!
It was a most gorgeous day when we were at Missouri Botanical Gardens last weekend, and what a wonderful way to spend our anniversary! We took sooo many pictures, and I have decided that there is no way to edit them down into one post, so this is the first of several.
I have tried to think of how to frame these pictures with words, but I just decided to let MoBot speak for itself, with captions. Enjoy the pictures.

The Queen of the Garden on her throne....yeah that would be me!
I've always loved this sculpture with bells

Very old hackberry tree. I love the huge, old trees of this garden.
The ancient trunk of this tree is truly awesome.
Another ancient tree, a sweetgum (and Himself, my gardening and life partner)
Japanese tree lilac. Never knew they could get so big!
Daylily garden, not blooming much yet.
except for this one: "Apricot"
Tomorrow, the English Woodland garden, where I could have spent days instead of hours. Fascinating plants there!
