Atlanta Botanical Garden - Part 1

This trip to Atlanta, we finally visited the Atlanta Botanical Garden and were totally enthralled! This will not be our last visit - that we know for sure!! 

Daniel was the photographer on this trip and he captured so much beauty that this will take three posts (yes, three!), lest I overwhelm you with flowers and plants! But share this I must!!! 

I dedicate these posts to all of the garden magicians, plant lovers, nature fairies and flower nymphs among you! Now, sit back and enjoy the beauty of nature's creation!

Happy Easter to all of you who observe this Holiday!


  1. Amazing photos!!! You're making me think it's time for a trip to the spring flower show at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago!!
    Happy Easter!!

  4. These are amazing! I've never seen some of them - they almost look like something from another planet. Did you see a lot of people painting there? What an inspiration - makes me want to find my canvas and pastel paints... I must plan a trip there some day!

    Frohe Ostern, Silke!

  14. Silke - as many times as we have been to Atlanta - we have never been to the Botanical gardens - your photos are amazing - they are truly beautiful. Now I am adding that to our list of places to go when we are there. What a day you must have had!
