    Atlanta Botanic Gardens pics

    I just dropped by the gardens yesterday - it was a bit cloudy/rainy so some aren't the best, but it was still beautiful. Enjoy!! (oh, and the sarr and vft pots are in a special back room for propagating wild plants to return back to their original habitats once they get going)

    The outdoor Sarr bog...not so pretty this time a year, but they did have it labeled according to location (the 'Georgia bog' and the 'Alabama bog' etc.)





    Some sculpture out front










    And they had a nice train set out front of a meeting center I think.






    The tropical plant buildling!


    In the lobby...


    In the front jungly room..




    The room between the highland conservatory with neps and things and that other tropical room, and the orchid conservatory is to the right. That's a tree made out of poinsettias!


    The highland house with neps & helis, lots of tillies and other pretty plants..




















    cont'd..

    This is that big tall leuco - my picture does it no justice.










    I assume those are some sort of carnivorous bromeliads at the top of the hill with the Helis...we're back in the highland house again.
















    and some pretty purple flower out with that poinsettia tree again..
