Enjoy the second annual Springtime exhibit of Atlanta Blooms at the Atlanta Botanical Garden during March and April, 2012. Tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and crocus explode in a kaleidoscope of colors from shocking pink to regal purple at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This year there are over 300,000 Watts of Flower Power to see at Atlanta Blooms. Shocking pink, “The Cure” tulips will greet you at the Piedmont Avenue entrance to the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Daffodils of various shades are abundant in the Cascading Garden and garden nooks. The Camellia Gardens are adorned with a mixture of blue and purple daffodils. The Atlanta Botanical Garden, Hardin Visitors Center is surrounded with brilliantly colored orange and purple flowers. The highlight of the exhibit is the North Courtyard that is surrounded with a rainbow of brilliantly colored tulips. This 300,000 Watts of Flower Power will definitely awaken you.
If you live in the South you will know that each person has their favorite bulbs they plant in their gardens. Tulips are flashy with their striking colors and love being the center of attention. They are known as the symbol of Perfect Love. Daffodils are one of the first signs that spring has arrived. With their yellow and white petals and lightly scented aromas that make everyone smile. Daffodils stand for unrequited love. Hyacinths are a single bell-shaped spike of sweetly scented pink to deep purple flowers. They are thought to symbolize adventure and playful nature. Lastly, the small determined Crocus are determined to poke their heads out even during snow. They symbolize the art of healing, foresight and wisdom. At our Atlanta Bed and Breakfast we enjoy our Daffodils.
One of my favorite things about Southern Gardens are the wonderful gates that grace our Gardens, from crudely constructed gates of kudzu vines, massive wooden gates that guard the garden to intricately carved iron gates. You will have the opportunity to see one of Atlanta’s well known metal artists, Andrew Crawford and his collection of various metal garden gates inviting and guiding you through the Atlanta Blooms exhibit. Some of his gates are abstract and others show sunflowers, birds and vegetables.
Mark you calendars for April 5th, 2012 and come and meet Caterina Candoni De Zan of Candoni Family Winery in Italy and enjoy some bubbly and toast in Springtime at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta Blooms!
