The Atlanta Botanical Garden

We went on a trip to the Atlanta Botanical Garden in Piedmont Park. This is a beautiful, very photogenic garden. I could spend an entire day here with just a macro lens photographing all the flowers, plants, and critters.

This trip they were having their Imaginary Worlds Once Upon a Time exhibit and Scarecrows in the Garden exhibit at the same time.

The Once Upon a Time exhibit was made up of huge charachters made with plants.

 The Princess. She is somewhat hidden and I think a lot of people miss her because the dragon is so impressive.

Another great time to visit the garden is during their Garden Lights, Holiday Nights Exhibit. They put on a spectacular light and music show.
