Yesterday we took advantage of a rare non-rainy day off and checked out the Imaginary Worlds exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Before visiting the exhibit in person, I mistakenly thought these living sculptures were a type of topiary. I learned they are actually called mosiacultures. They aren't pruned into shapes like topiary, but rather built with plants over steel armature. The varying types of plants create different colors and textures, much like in a two-dimensional mosaic.
You can see lots of beautiful, professional shots of the exhibit elsewhere. I won't attempt to compete with those. These are just a few fun photos of our day at the Garden.
These butterflies weren't really menacing Anthony. I think he was just having a yellow jacket flashback.
Imaginary Worlds includes many other sculptures, including a unicorn, two dancing fish in a fountain, and a very life-like shaggy dog. Check out the exhibit if you get a chance. It's really cool, and it runs through October, so you have plenty of time!
