HAPPY  4TH OF  JULY,  2014 !!!

From now until September 7, 2014,  Lego Art “Nature Connects”  is on display  in the Climatron  at Mo Bot.  in St. Louis, Missouri.  Guaranteed  to be enjoyed by  kids  and adults of all ages!   There are 12 displays and here are my favorites:

Of course, being a bird watcher,  I love this  Pileated Woodpecker.  It’s made with  4424 Legos.

This is just a partial caption of “Feeding the Birds or the Squirrels?”  which  took 8586 Legos to make.

Now  onto the bugs…….. This Monarch Butterfly  is feasting on milkweed, a much needed nutritional plant  for them  to make the long  journey to Mexico for the winter.  You can help the Monarchs by planting milkweed in your yard.  This display used 60,549 Legos.

Did you know that the Praying Mantis can eat frogs, lizards and even hummingbirds?  No wonder I didn’t like these creeping looking  bugs!  42,167 Legos were used in this display.

This Milk Snake is after it’s favorite mouse snack here.  12,069  Legos used  to create this slitherly  image that I hope I never see in my garden.  : )

This would  look great in any garden !    27,869 Legos were needed to make the Sundial and Bluebird.

But Wait!  By the time I was finished seeing the Lego Art, it was raining buckets outside!!!!  So I  photographed some of the  plants and flowers that make me smile.   Proof that Mother Nature has a sense of humor:
