If you are planning to drive south this month to escape the winter, think about adding a stop at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Their wonderful topiary exhibition Imaginary Worlds closes at the end of October. The gardeners/artists of the Atlanta Botanical Garden teamed up with International Mosaciculture of Montreal to create 28 fabulous works of living art.
Two hundred thousand annuals were planted by hand on to metal forms covered with netting and growing medium. At least once a week horticulturists groom the works of art to keep them looking fresh and new. What a fun job that must be!
Imaginary Worlds is the first major exhibition of its kind in the U.S.
Instead of dreading Atlanta because of its traffic congestion, you’ll have something to look forward to on your drive south.
