The Atlanta Botanical Garden presents Orchid Daze, Surreal Beauty thru April 14th, 2013. Orchid Daze is one of my favorite Atlanta events. I always know spring is nearby when the Atlanta Botanical Garden showcases Orchid Daze – and best of all, it just a short stroll from our Atlanta Bed and Breakfast. This years Orchid Daze, Surreal Beauty will inspire your imagination by placing fanciful flowers and playful objects close to one another so you can see the contrast and blending of each.
The Lobby of the Fuqua Orchid Center at the Atlanta Botanical Garden has been transformed with brilliantly colored red, yellow, and orange orchids. The atrium of the Fuqua Orchid Center is raining sweetly scented upside down pink and white blossoms of dendrobium and pastal cymbidium orchids. The mirrored wall distorts orchids and visitors alike, blending them into unique forms and reflections. As you enter the Orchid House at Orchid Daze don’t miss the Shoe Tree rising from a formal bed. These jewel-toned slipper orchids hang from the ceiling emerging into stilettos. One of the sections I enjoy at the Atlanta Botanical Garden is the Moth Orchid Blast. Moth Orchids explode from the walls in yellow and terracotta hues.
Don’t miss March 9th and 10th, and April 13th and 14th at the Atlanta Botanical Garden when they present Orchid Market Weekend. There are suppliers and growers, orchid experts giving advice on growing orchids at home and artwork featuring orchids. You will have the opportunity to choose from several types of orchids that will be for sale as well as unique supplies you might need.
Dream of warm sunny days and get inspired at the Atlanta Botanical Garden Orchid Daze exhibit.
