Childrens Hospital

Recently, we had the pleasure of playing substitute grandparent's for a friends son.  We drove him into the city to keep a doctors appointment.  I discovered that one of the most colorful places in the St. Louis area has to be Childrens Hospital.  

From the moment you turn into the drive, you encounter brightly colored statues that help show you the way.  

These colorful figurines are a mixture of animals 

and clowns 

Even the guard posts are in happy colors

Just outside the entrance are brightly colored sculptures 

of elephants and giraffes.  

The exam room floor tiles are even a rainbow of hues.

If a child has to be sick, St. Louis Childrens Hospital is certainly the place you want them to be.   I found the colorful pallet used throughout the hospital to be a boost to the moral of even the healthy folks who visit there. Being able to photograph all these colorful items certainly helped brighten my time there.        


  1. How whimsical!
    I love it all!
    That tiled floor is something I would have gone for in my younger days. :)
    A plethora of lovely colors Rita!

  2. What a great idea to help cheer people up at a hospital! Love all the colors!

Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
