  • MoBOT is gorgeous in cherry blossom season.

If you didn't get outside to enjoy yesterday's near-perfect weather, well, there's always today. Not only are conditions just as idyllic, but the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard) is staying open late to accommodate your spring fever.

The garden will be open this one night only until 8 p.m., with the last guests being let in at 7:30 p.m. Regular admission applies.

The reason for this special evening opportunity? It's peak cherry blossom season in St. Louis, and MoBOT is providing an opportunity to walk through the gorgeous blossoms before it's too late.

Oh, but that's not all. Per the garden, "hundreds of daffodils, crocus, and other early spring bulbs" are now emerging throughout the grounds. It's not just peak cherry — it's peak spring! And since this is St. Louis, and 90-degree temps can only be a few days away (sigh), why not seize the moment before it's too late?
