April 28, 2007 - Atlanta Botanical Gardens
We wake up to a treat, an elusive indigo bunting eats at our feeder.
Off to Atlanta and the Botanical Gardens.
There is a special exhibit of huge wooden bugs. I like mantises.
Jill poses by some dianthus.
The arid display reminds me of my former home-away-from-home, Tempe, AZ.
An impressive island of pitcher plants!
Birds feed inside the Conservatory.
A mama quail and two of her six chicks.
Jill with orchids at the Fuqua center.
The phallus just to the left of center is a vanilla bean - a rarity for 'captivity.'
Bullfrogs are a cool break from all the flora.
