Every fall, I make sure to plan a visit to the Atlanta Botanical Garden for their annual “Scarecrows in the Garden” event. To me, it’s the epitome of fall’s arrival… TONS of scarecrows decorated by people and organizations from all over the community, pumpkins, seasonal ales, great weather, and banjo music! I actually got two exhibits for the price of one, because the gorgeous, huge living sculptures from “Imaginary Worlds” were still on display.
Fun evening with some of my puppet coworkers::
Scarecrow Sockly, the Center for Puppetry Arts’ scarecrow — he’s modeled after our 8′ tall sock puppet mascot::
Some pretties from around the garden::
The Earth Goddess – a beautiful, HUGE sculpture/water feature::
This gal had a great duct tape dress and hat::
The Royal HAY-by::
Black bird pie… made out of a kiddie pool::
Fabulous pink ponies and skeletons! I think these were my favorite::
Such a pretty view of part of the Midtown skyline at dusk::
Such a lovely way to wind down October and get ready for the holidays – and cold weather! There’s just one week left for both of these displays, so be sure to visit soon if you’re in Atlanta!
