There are quite a few places that I want to visit while we are staying in Georgia. We attempted to visit the Zoo Atlanta this past Sunday, however, parking was very chaotic and traffic was just unreal. So my sister mentioned the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and we went with it! I knew that I would be in heaven there-with my love for nature photography and all…I just knew I would feel right at home!
The weather was kinda overcast with a 40% chance of rain in the afternoon so it was good that some of the attractions were inside. All in all it turned out to be a beautiful day to visit. I just want to go back at night to experience the lights!
Best part of it all is that I got a chance to use my new baby. Noah bought me a Canon Rebel SL1 to replace my Canon Powershot! My Powershot was about 8 years old and it was due for a serious upgrade! All photos are unedited and straight from the camera! I’m loving it and can’t wait to do some more exploring in this busy city!
Through the month of October you can see 28 fantastic living sculptures throughout the gardens. The sculptures have been re-imagined with new plant designs and are located in different areas throughout the Garden. My favorite is the Earth Goddess!

and here are some photos of my family that joined us on our adventure through the gardens:
