We visited Atlanta Botanical Gardens last Sunday, at dusk, and took in their big outdoor event called Garden Lights.   Click on any picture for a larger view.

This exhibit has a lot of everything you would expect for the holiday season: traditional choral sounds and  flower arrangements,  fun light designs that impress children and adults, and refreshment stations for all tastes.

The weather was clear, cool, and comfortable. We saw the stars come out in the woods around Canopy Walk and Garden Tunnel. 

A walking tour like this brings you up close to the displays, and unlike the auto tours at Lake Lanier and Calloway Gardens it was easy to set up for a few pictures.

There are a few different views of the Atlanta skyline from the Levy Parterre, Great Lawn, Rose Garden and Rock Garden. 

The big attraction for me was the collection of lights on the Great Lawn.  They constantly change color and intensity.

There was a short line into the Fuqua Conservatory, but ABG controlled the volume of visitors which made for easy access to the exhibits. We ended our tour by walking through the Edible and Perennial Gardens.


I went a little crazy on the Great Lawn.
