Every year the Atlanta botanical garden brings to their visitors the best Bloom exhibition of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocuses. Featuring a quarter – million flowers of different colors, shapes and fragrances. I visited yesterday and I truly recommended for a nice family weekend!

Orchid Daze at the Atlanta Botanical Garden

6 Feb

Yesterday we visited the Orchid Daze at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. A must see! Gorgeous hanging gardens with Orchids of all imaginable colors, shapes and fragrances (even a stinky Orchid that attracts flies by simulating the odor of decaying meat). A sky dance of Phalaenopsis, Paphiopedilum, Miltoniopsis and many many many more. With this beautiful weather there is no better place in Atlanta to have a colorful and peaceful day than the Botanical Gardens.

While over there, why not buying a live orchid from local grower and get advice on how to take care of it from the experts? We meet Ms. Barbara June from Peach State Orchids, who explained to us in detail how to take care of our home orchids. She has extraordinary orchids and deals from as little as $10 dollars. Visit the Orchid Market during the weekends February 4 – 5, March 3 – 4, April 7 -8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Holiday Lights at Atlanta Botanical Garden

10 Jan

What an experience!! Garden lights presented by The Kendera Fund were an exciting experience of nearly 1 million lights hand-crafted into displays inspired by nature. As soon as you arrive to the garden you will be delight by a galaxy of stars in the woodlands; tree trunks with a rainbow of lights and walking into the Edible Garden you will see bees, butterflies, and other lighted; and 200 show-stopping, color-changing topiary forms choreographed to holiday music on the Great Lawn.

 Most importantly kids will LOVE this adventure; they will have popcorn and marshmallows for roasting at the fire pit.

This intown experience is one of a kind that promises get better and better every year.
