I've flown through Atlanta for years, never stopping to do a darn thing. Well, now I have. We spent a dreamy morning at the Atlanta Botanical Garden designed by Adam Schwerner. Wow! He did a fantastic job combining nature art and the real thing. Plus, there was a bonus...the Dale Chihuly glass sculptures were simply amazing.
I tried so hard to get a mocking bird photo while in Georgia. I'm not sure if this even is one. It might be a cat bird. But boy, we enjoyed listening to the mockingbird's prolific copy cat repertoire while in Georgia.
No need to sit alone.
The chains mimic dripping vines in a jungle.
My absolute favorite installation was the old chandeliers dripping with bromeliads and orchids, big and small. I felt awestruck.
The orchid room was a visual feast. It really can't be replicated on film. As with everything in the garden, you need to experience it in person.
Those are spray painted trees!
And a lovely lady...a real Georgia peach.
Go ahead. Leave the airport.
