The Atlanta Botanical Garden has an exhibit called "Imaginary Worlds", of some shaped plants [along with the usual floral profusion]. There're cobras, butterflies, an ogre, a shaggy dog, a unicorn, a goddess, etc.

Lots of fun pictures are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24609723@N08/sets/72157633398155815/

[personal profile] fajrdrako, there are also All The Irises, for you.

Saturday, April 6, was the Azalea Festival at Reynolds Nature Preserve. They'd had it two weeks later last year, and all the azaleas were mostly gone. They had it earlier this year, when buds were barely beginning to swell.

Ze spouse & I still had a swell time, though, hanging out with the Professora & [profile] asg_qa_s7 [except when he was stalking wild turtles ;)]. The ranger talk was informative, the company lively, & the day gorgeous. Still, there should've been hotdogs, t-shirts in my size in a color I like [i.e., not white], and, oh, yeah, azaleas.

The following weekend I went to 221 B con [221bcon.com] on Saturday, for 8 consecutive hours of panels. It was excellent, entertaining and informative, but exhausting. I'll definitely do the con again [assuming they have it again], but I was a bit burnt out & so bagged the Sunday panels. Instead, ze spouse & I went intense walkabout at Reynolds with the camera. There were azaleas everywhere, vincas, dogwoods, some cool fungus, & especially walls of wisteria. Here are those pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24609723@N08/sets/72157633299854535/

We went back with a camera Sunday. What a change in just a week! The azaleas are almost all gone, bedraggled with pathetically-straggling stamen, the wisteria's faded away, the maple's gone, & the vincas are in retreat. There's no new cool fungus. What there *is*, however is roses [both Cherokee & pink], clematis, irises, white-gold azaleas, blue stars, lilies, snowballs, & dianthus. See for yourselves: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24609723@N08/sets/72157633304409231/

It's like lots of plants arrived late & left early, to make up for lost time. Time is a weird thing, & insists on playing tricks.

Sara Teasdale rightly opined: There are so many ways to love, And each way has its own delight--

In other words, & still, the pictures are nice, & I hope you enjoy them.

note: this includes the *Best Fungus Ever*!!



We also took the first ever baseball tour at Oakland Cemetery, mostly of players in the first game after the Civil War. Their markers [where known] were rather nondescript, but there was lots of other cool stuff to see:

Hey, [personal profile] mmegaera! I'll see your Snoqualmie pictures, and raise you. [weg]

Here you go:

I'll be putting the other pictures from the trip up there soon.

to the bottom 6-7 rows [the pictures tagged Dolly--2013-02-13] for some exciting cat action. There's bird-watching, exciting new sleep positions, and the true OTP, a catnip mousie bought from a Bujold listie at the RenFaire years ago. Apparently, it's cat-lickin' good!

No, no superheroes were involved, although, when lawyerspouse & I took the Professora for a walk in one of the Chattahoochee River recreation areas, we found some pretty amazing things. Check it out:

Because we found so many cool things on Saturday's walk, Lawyerspouse and I went walkabout yesterday with a camera. Ruffledy orange fungus is fiddly to photograph, especially with a camera where the close-up isn't as good as I'm used to. The shots from across the rivulet came out very well, however.

What do y'all think? Can you find the spiderwebs?

Tall, dark, and legal went walkabout to the Ocmulgee River Trail & Piedmont Wildlife Refuge. Here are the fun pictures!

He channels me rather well, don't you think? [weg]

I've added all the pictures. If you look at the ones tagged "Dolly's Bath" as a slide show, it looks like a movie. [Hey, that's big excitement around here.]

My spouse, the mighty madman, makes a monthly marathon march, in which he drives 2-4 hours to a state park [usually in our home state] and hikes 10-20 miles. The pictures from his latest hike are here:

He brings me pictures of beautiful things.


Speaking of which,

Merry Christmas, all!

note: the cd mentioned under "music" was found at a thrift store this week. I'm squeeing in gleeful anticipation of ze spouse's appalled expression upon receiving it. [weg]

If we didn't photograph All The Things, it wasn't for lack of trying!

There's not only lots of gold, there's lots of red, too!

I don't know about Valimar, but here's some Lothlorien:
