I just had to make it to Atlanta Botanical Gardens before the Alice’s Wonderland exhibits were gone…and I had to pick my daughter up at the airport, so I killed two birds with one stone. Jeanne and I made the trip to Atlanta Sunday to take it all in. Atlanta Botanical Gardens is located at 1234 Piedmont Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30309
Atlanta Botanical Gardens includes 30 acres of outdoor gardens in the middle of Midtown Atlanta. The Botanical Gardens opened their doors in 1976 and has been ever evolving since. The gardens mission is to develop and maintain plant collections for the purpose of display, education, conservation, research and enjoyment. For anyone that knows me, knows I get thorough enjoyment out of flowers and plants…maybe because I grew up with a horticulturalist as a dad, being a part of the Ornamental Horticulture team in FFA or just because they are so beautiful; either way, I truly enjoy the beauty in it all.
You can follow Alice down the rabbit hole until October 27th in this beautiful exhibit, Imaginary Worlds: Alice’s Wonderland.
The exhibits you will see are 1. Pegasus, 2. Mammoth, 3. Earth Goddess, 4. Phoenix, 5. Mermaid, 6. Dragon, 7. Camels, 8. White Rabbit, 9. Chessboard, 10. Alice & Cheshire Cat and 11. Shaggy Dog.
There are also the Scarecrows in the Garden right now! This exhibit ends November 3rd. I took photos of my favorite scarecrows.
After the gardens, we headed to Krog Street Market and then to Jackson Street bridge for some long exposure shots on the bridge.
