Back to Missouri Botanical Gardens for a bit. This Ottoman Garden was pretty neat. Central water feature, throne area in the back under the pergola/arbor, and lots of great plantings surrounding the walkways.
This is an interestingly simple garden for St. Louis to pull off because our latitude is almost the same with Turkey (40 degrees north). The garden is modeled after 16th to 19th century Turkish gardens. This Ottoman Garden is the first of it's kind anywhere in the United States.
