Last week we decided to take advantage of the gorgeous fall weather; so we took a break from work and heading to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
It is hard to believe that there are 30 acres in the middle of the city dedicated solely to art, education, horticulture, and sustainability.
There are so many gorgeous focal points around every turn.
There are several smaller themed gardens such as the Japanese Garden, the Rose garden, the Fuqua Conservatory and Fuqua Orchid Center. I am sorry that I don't have pictures of all of these to share, but I do have picture of the children's garden which was one of my most favorite!
This map shows a plan view of the children's garden.
There is a fun tunnel for the children to crawl though which also explains the metamorphosis of a caterpillar. And a butterfly garden...
There is the sunflower fountain- just for fun!
There is also a vegetable garden and an amphitheater for the kids that I unfortunately do not have pictures to show.
The Elevated Canopy Walk is under construction and is projected to be completed by Spring 2010. I cant wait to get back to see this exhibit!
