Botanical Gardens

My sister and I and (good golly) Miss Molly met up at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens the other day with children in tow.   Even though the temperature quickly rose to unbearable levels, we managed to get there early enough to have a good time before heat exhaustion set in!  Here are a few of the shots I got.

Update!!!  The second to last shot (of Annabel giving Stella a piggyback ride) was featured in a mosaic on the Mortal Muses website, which was focused on the theme of “two”.  A great idea!!!  Check out the button on the sidebar to the site.

Love these flowers!

These yellow flowers were insanely gorgeous, and apparently they were a favorite of bees too because there were SO many surrounding them.  Bees freak me out.  I can only appreciate them from a far far distance.

The following three photos show Annabel and her newest friend, Stella, as they bonded along the canopy walk.
