I live near Powell Gardens which is a 970-acre (3.9 km2) botanical garden about 30 miles east of Kansas City, Missouri. This is where I enjoy my weekend nature walks amongst the flowers.
Kansas City Union Station is one of the icons of downtown Kansas City, Missouri, having opened in 1914. Once a booming rail station and also noted for the Kansas City Massacre, it still serves public transportation as an Amtrak station while also hosting theaters, museum exhibits, and other attractions. As a small child I unintentionally let go of my helium balloon and watched it float to the top of the 95 foot ceiling. Click on the photo for other views of downtown Kansas City posted previously.
And this is the place I’ll be most evenings working on blog, photos, and mischief.

Rainer Maria Rilke
The future: time’s excuse
to frighten us; too vast
a project, too large a morsel
for the heart’s mouth.
Future, who won’t wait for you?
Everyone is going there.
It suffices you to deepen
the absence that we are.
“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask?
A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.” ― Victor Hugo

To know someone here or there with whom you can feel there is understanding
in spite of distances or thoughts expressed. That can make life a garden.
