Art me in the Garden; or Rather, the Atlanta Botanical Garden.....

 Last week, my friend Nancy and I went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens- really we went just to see the gardens with the first touches of Autumn color.  We were pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful exhibit of scarecrows placed throughout the gardens.  This one was at the door, and yes, that's me in the reflection....

Gotta love Black Jack Sparrow or should that be Black Jack SpareCROW?  Sorry, couldn't resist ;)



The rose garden is is an incredible formal garden.....
 
The fountain at the center of the the Parterre Rose garden- flaunting a Chihuly sculpture, so incredible!

 This was my favorite of the scarecrows, I love how her dress was made with magnolia leaves and leftover hydrangea blooms

I find it so amazing that you can catch glimpses of the Atlanta skyline throughout the garden....

 These little scare monsters were SO much fun- I LOVE the colors!

 Asters, so very purply-bluish-purple......I think I NEED some


 Lucky her dress is so pretty, not sure about the face...

This guy was really neat also, I wish he had a yellow brick road alongside him...

That's about all for now, I need to get going on my painting for Inspiration Avenue's weekly challenge, else I won't have anything to share there OR at Paint Party Friday....see y'all later!
