Try a little kindness

It was a sublime day at the beach today in Lordship.  I think we can all use a little kindness in our lives at this point. Don'tcha think?

A Bouquet of Roses

Here's a bouquet of roses to tie you over.  I've got a busy couple of days coming up and I'm not sure how much time I'll get to edit and comment on photos.  Looking ahead, more St. Louis, a lavender farm and more.

The Jewel Box in Forest Park

The Jewel Box in Forest Park is one of my favorite stops in St. Louis.  In the summer the grounds are resplendent with it floral display and the lilies in the lily pond were in bloom. Built in 1936 the Jewel Box is owned by the Parks and Rec Dept. and is a public viewing green house.  

During the holidays they have special floral displays inside.

Crown Candy Kitchen

After a busy 24 hours in Memphis we drove back to St. Louis for more adventure and food.  Crown Candy Kitchen did not disappoint.  Located in an older part of St. Louis city it still has the feel of an old time soda fountain.  They are known for their BLT's and chocolate shakes.

Outside a man was playing the steel drum and giving some lessons to kids as they waited for a table.
Small inside.  We waited about 30 minutes to get in.
In addition to the eat in place there is the candy store section.
At our table, but now defunct, an old jukebox.
The best.
Even better.  Probably a pound of bacon on each sandwich.  I posted this pic on Facebook if it looks familiar.

Salons of Memphis

Here are two of the beauty salon's across the street from the Stax Museum of American Soul Music.  I was fascinated by the brightly painted brick.
