Tuesday, I showed you some fun Scarecrows at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Now lets take a peek at some of the blooming colors. We did not hang around to watch the dancing waters. I am sure they are awesome as most dancing water features I have seen.
I have no idea what this apricot colored beauty is but it was beautiful and glowing with the sun shining upon it.
Let's sit and think a bit shall we?
Water fountain in the middle of the Food Court. We enjoyed a danish and cup of coffee in the cafe. A bit nippy to sit outside until the sun warmed things up a bit.
The Fountain courtyard is surrounded by succulents.
Succulents in big pots.
This walkway was the brightest spot in the entire garden. Well, the outside portion of the garden.
Panning back, you can see a mirror image on both sides of the bridge. As if walking into the gates of heaven!
Spots of color tell of the Fall Season. We were captivated by the elephant ear type plant in the back. The leaf of the plant made a cup of sorts. Was most neat.
Area for learning in the children's garden. I bet many school children sit next to the frog while learning during the warmer months of the year.
Leaves in the pond tell a story of Fall.
Art work within the gardens. So difficult to capture a good long shot of white flowers.
One of many water features within the gardens.
One of two of my favorite blooms in this garden on this visit.
Ginger Lily (Zingiberaceae, Hedychium Coronarium) The scent was intoxicating to me! These beauties were found throughout the gardens.
I spotted an area of Creamy Yellowish White as well.
My second favorite bloom in the garden is this beautiful red explosion!
Firecracker Bush, (Rubiaceae, Bouvardia Ternifolia) I just know these plants call in the hummingbirds, although, gone for the season.
At this point my camera battery died. I put in the back-up and guess what? I forgot to charge it. Duh, so no pictures of the beautiful Orchids and Tropicals in the Fuqua Conservatory. Did you know the Orchid Center has the largest collection of species orchids on permanent display in the USA? (Click Here to read more). No photos of the Rose Garden. No photos of the Atlanta Skyline peeking over the gardens. No photos of the amazing Edible Garden & Outdoor Kitchen with unique Herb Wall. No photo of the Vine Arbor, Japanese Garden or the huge Frogs we spotted amongst the Lotus Lily in the reflecting pond. Did you know the Fuqua Conservatory is working with the Atlanta Zoo to help conserve Gopher Frogs?
