Atlanta had one of its snowless Snow Days on Friday in which schools, workplaces, and virtually the entire city closed down in order to allow everyone to rush to the grocery for bread, milk and batteries ahead of the impending Snowmageddon! (And, skeptics, we did get a little ice Friday night, so it was totally and completely justified.) So after everyone fled the Garden, I took the opportunity to take some leisurely pictures in the Orchid Display House. It was quiet and lovely in the semi-twilight.
See what you missed? Don't worry, most of these guys will still be in flower next week, plus many more. And don't forget, the Fuqua Orchid Center is one of the best places in town to spend a cold January day.
The Fuqua Orchid Center showcases the Atlanta Botanical Garden's large and diverse collection of orchids. Orchids are exhibited year round in the 16,000 sq. ft. display space, consisting of landscaped areas and seasonal displays. Our spring orchid extravaganza, ORCHIDdaze, runs for ten weeks in Feb, March and April.
