It was such a beautiful weekend that The Saint and I decided to take a little Day Trip. Our destination took us to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. (Click HERE for more)
Upon entry into the gardens, we knew we were in for a Fall Treat.
But we had no idea what fun treat's were waiting for us around each corner. Sir Spooks-A-Lot was hanging onto his high riding horse of straw.
Signs with each of the many Scare-Crows told the name and sponsor of the Atlanta Community.
Franken Panda (Atlanta Zoo)
King of the world (Titanic, The Artifact Exhibition)
I failed to snap pics of most of the signs thinking that between the Saint and I, one of us would remember the names. Ha, after seeing about 100 of these fun creatures, we lost many names to the aging memory.
Feel free to add names to these fun creations if you desire.
Get your children involved for a start to Halloween by discussing the materials used to make them.
Honey Boo Boo
Yes a cute honey bee...
Dutches of the Dip (the Melting Pot)
Mother Nature perhaps...?...
Two friends sharing some wine.
The Caterer maybe?
A. Frayed Knot
We had a chuckle from this name. All yarn, thread type materials.
The Mariachi Band was on hand for the party.
This gal was a bit spooky to me.
I would call this one the Peace Crow. Any names from you on this one?
This one was made from musical instruments. The neck was from a horn. The ears are mouth pieces. The straw was shredded sheets of music. So cleaver. The Mardi Gras beads in the spider web have me thinking this one is based on Jazz as heard in New Orleans.
This Dragon greeted us as we entered the Children's Garden. It was large and made by an elementary school.
What name would you give this tall lady?
Birthday cake, balloons. Hum, a Birthday party no doubt.
This one seems to have fallen into the melting pot. OD'ed on Chocolate no doubt.
A Girl Scout "Juliette Gordon Crow" maybe...
Hum, any guesses? Do I see wings?
The Happy Jack Fun Run. These two are made from Plastic Bottles!
PVC Pipe Basketball boy.
Mermaid in the Garden
Harvesting family. What ya think?
Scare-et Crow 'Hara (Tuberculosis Elimination Team) Notice she is holding a jar of TB pills. Many messages where noted within these works of art.
This guy had something to do with straws but not sure of the name. I would just say Straw a Crow.
I believe this sign to say, Gertrude the Gardener.
The torso is a storage container. Ha...
A Boy Scout but not sure of his name.
This one is in the veggie garden. What could we name her?
A gardener teaching the children no doubt.
I believe this one was on the lines of feed the hungry food pantry.
This was one of my favorites.
Leonardo Da Scary
The Saint had to explain this one to me. I had no idea that Leonardo Da Vinci was more then an artist. Ha, the things I learn while in the garden.
A bucket, trash can and water barrel. This one has a lot to say.
Fifty Shades of Hay
I know you just giggle at this one as did we.
Another Mermaid with this one being filled with Oyster shells. Maybe sponsored by a Seafood restaurant.
Yes, we cracked up when seeing the name on this one.
I believe this one was "Wheelie Scarecrow" but not sure.
Yes the feet are Keyboards. Ha...
Yikes! Something I don't care to come upon in the woods.
For Whom the Bellman Rolls (Hotels Group)
Crow deo Drive
"Justice D. Crow" maybe???
"Angie Pitt" maybe. Ha.
Miss Unafraid and S'more Tagalongs (Girl Scout Troop 10511)
Something Wicket this Way Comes (Georgia Shakespeare) With an upcoming election in a few days, you knew this one was coming.
This was our first visit to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and we were not sure what to expect. We were surprised with a large and well laid out garden right in the middle of the big city! There is not much in bloom this time of year but we enjoyed the ATLANTA SCARECROWS, In the Garden.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND BE SAFE!
