Atlanta Botanical Gardens, our visit
(note: You might get more out of these if you click on each picture, but again with a couple of them you may be repulsed).
Friday we went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, which is on the edge of Piedmont Park. It was a beautiful day, not too hot, not too cold, just right with a pleasant breeze. There are outside gardens and ponds of many types and a huge greenhouse which, I think is a complex of many greenhouses under one roof. One huge room high the regulated environment of a tropical rain forest and another one was much cooler, it was trying to be like a mountain climate.
They had many types of man-made art to complement the plants.. some moved with the wind or even sounds and some just stood there. There were all a pleasant viewing experience.
The many types and varieties of plant life were beautiful. I took several hundred pictures. I have been through these pictures many times trying to “weed out” (get it?) the bad ones. Here are the not- too- bad -ones that remained:

See the little frogs? Don't touch, they are poisonous. Also, see the frog with his/her mouth all blown up - it must be a mating thing.
I'm pretty sure this is a Rubber Plant.
Another Rubber Plant.
