"The Meeting of the Waters" at Union Station
|The water jets were turned off, but we enjoyed looking at the sculpture.|
The fountain, titled "Meeting of the Waters," was a favorite of my mother's.
Milles at the Missouri Botanical Gardens
|Several Milles sculptures are also installed in reflecting pools at the Missouri Botanical Gardens, which we visited Sunday.|
|I find these sculptures to be more graceful than the ones at Union Station. I also wrote about|
the sculptures at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina recently.
|At left, you can see the famous "Climatron," a geodesic dome built in the garden in 1960. R. Buckminster Fuller's|
invention of the geodesic dome was shortly before this, and this structure was the first conservatory using the invention.
