Orchid Daze is happening right now at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The "theme" this year, besides OMIGOSH LOOK AT ALL THE PRETTY ORCHIDS, is "Hanging Gardens".
Just off to the side of the entrance are some terrariums with colorful frogs. You have to stop for a second and see how many you can spot. But this time they had some new varieties and these Glass Frogs were so cute, I couldn't resist taking their picture.
Back to the flowers!
For Orchid Daze, they always do a big display in this foyer. And often, it's something they've constructed...a craft project that houses lots of gorgeous flowers. I loved the hanging display they made here, with metal pots sunk into the wooden slats and the whole affair painted copper.
And it houses lots of beauties like this one.
Another great hanging display is behind the reflecting pool in the main orchid house.
These orchids almost form the perfect ikebana arrangement naturally with the points of heaven, man and earth.
Hey, how about if I just let the flowers do the talking from here on out??
|And I was able to get these without inconveniencing all my fellow Orchid Daze goers by plopping my tripod down at every point on the path or climbing on the benches. I'm looking at you, lady with the giant purse and dude in the hat.|
