Last week, my son and I took an opportunity, through a special event in which we enjoyed a discounted entry, to enjoy the beautiful and educational Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I had not been there in at least 13-14 years, and had never before taken my son there to visit. A great opportunity came up, and so, we went!
Among the many varieties of flowers in bloom at the Gardens are tulips, daffodils, and pansies. They were so beautiful, and the fragrance of the miniature daffodils was wonderful! It was a treat to speak with a number of the volunteers at the Gardens who gave us information about the collections there, as well as about gardening tools and maintenance.
At the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, we enjoyed presentations about amphibians and deadly plants. We also walked through the conservatory, and enjoyed viewing and learning about the various species of frogs that are housed there.
We also enjoyed walking through the Japanese Garden and the Edible Garden, as well as viewing the many picturesque statues and fountains.
In all, my son and I were at the Gardens for about two hours. Even though it was wet and rainy during our visit, we had a great time. After all, Spring is here, and with it, comes needed rain! Visiting the Gardens was also a great way to start Spring Break.
