Last week I chaperoned my son’s kindergarden class to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.  I was especially excited to go because I hadn’t been to the Botanical Gardens in a while – but most importantly a very special exhibit from Montreal was there – Imaginary Worlds – Mosaiculture.  

As you can see by my photos, this was a truly unique exhibit and incredulous to see!   For the most part, these plant sculptures were huge – most probably in the range of 16′-25’tall – all larger-than-life!
This was my son’s favorite topiary “Fido” – an amazingly realistic 10ft shaggy dog!
This fountain Goddess was the highlight of the exhibit.  It’s hard to imagine the size and scale of this topiary from my photos – but, she was truly a sight!  Even the kindergardeners were in awe!
Sadly, the exhibit ended on October 31st.  I have no idea where it will travel to next.  Atlanta was the first city on the US tour.  If it comes to your city, you MUST go see it – it truly is an exceptional and fun exhibit!
The Atlanta Botanical Garden has so many other terrific things to see!  It’s a great way to spend a gorgeous afternoon.  Here are a few other photographs that I took along the way!

The Scarecrows in the Garden exhibit is still going on.  There are wonderful pieces created by all different groups around Georgia.

Enjoy your day!
