I spent the last few days visiting friends in Atlanta
in perfect summer weather, no humidity! Kind of amazing at this time of year. We visited the Atlanta Botanical Garden which is fantastic... large, well planned and full of inspiration and beauty.
Mosaiculture of Montreal's installations are being exhibited throughout the gardens. The charming shaggy dog greets you as you enter.
This beautiful goddess with flowing water was purchased and will be a permanent fixture in the cascading fountain garden.
We loved the benches designed by blacksmith Andrew T. Crawford. He also made several beautiful gates throughout the gardens.
The Children's Garden has a wonderful butterfly gate, not able to find it's creator.
David Landis made the stainless steel butterfly that overlooks the Children's Garden.
An ogre with a tunnel though his ears.
Behind the set of fish is the lawn where the Concerts in the Garden series is held.
There is a Chihuly water and glass sculpture.
Herbs are grown vertically, great space saving idea.
And of course orchids are always a visual treat, especially en masse.
I will make a return visit soon to share it with my husband. To plan your visit, visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden site here.
Thanks for visiting!
