#50 – Orchid Daze: Towers of Flowers at Atlanta Botanical Gardens – Celebrate Spring with Bountiful Blooms
What better way to celebrate spring and Easter weekend than with a visit to Atlanta Botanical Gardens for the Orchid Daze: Towers of Flowers exhibit?
Orchid Daze is an annual tradition at Atlanta Botanical Garden and showcases about 10,000 dazzling varieties of orchids. This year the orchids are displayed vertically, in huge towers and walls of gorgeous color. It’s not your grandmother’s garden show – it’s living art, a visual spectacular. Orchid Daze continues through April 11, 2010.
And while you’re there, you can visit the Orchid Market (consider this a bonus for today’s post – two great events, one location!). It’s an “orchid-inspired” shopping experience, featuring live orchis, artwork, jewelry, and more! But hurry, the Orchid Market is only open this weekend,Saturday and Sunday, April 3 – 4, 2010, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
